Summary - The poetess describes the beautiful scenery in her native area of Skye. She thinks back to her youth when she happily tended the sheep. She remembers too going out to waulkings and weddings in winter time. The young people would play music and dance. That time has passed however, and the glen is now a sad place. Andrew's house, which reminds the poetess of her youth, is a ruin full of nettles. She describes climbing the shoulder of the mountain. Every plant and flower brings back memories of her early days.
