Hi Nigel,

thank you!!!

It seems to be the closest, although honestly I am still not sure.... Richard Wood plays a tune which has an F# in it...
but itīs certainly the first transcription which turns up by that exact name...

Itīs not the Massacre of Glencoe (or: Mac Donaldīs Lament) and itīs definitely not the Skinner piece either - I checked in the Harp & Claymore...

My problem her is also, that I love flat keys, but I am not so good in playing them, nor am I really well versed in music theory, so it will take me a bit to figure out the whole thing....

thank you so much for taking the time to dig out this tune!

Can you tell us more? I don't have the record (Richard Woodīs "All
Fired Up"). Could it be "Massacre of Glencoe"? Do you know the
composer? I think Skinner wrote a tune called "Glencoe". Hang on, I
think I've found it... This is a transcription of the way it's played
on a Whistlebinkies record:

T:Great Is the Cause of My Sorrow
T:Murt Ghlinne Comhann
T:The Lament for Glencoe
D:Whistlebinkies 2, 1980
