Summary

The verses recited of this Skye emigrant song describe the intolerable conditions which caused the emigration and the favourable conditions in which the emigrants eventually found themselves in Prince Edward Island; conditions which prompt the bard to urge his former fellow islanders to come and join him at the earliest opportunity.
