Item Notes

This song is associated with a pibroch sometimes called the 'The Piper's Warning to His Master'. The pibroch, and the words of this song, are linked with a story which tells how Colla MacDonald (Colkitto/Colla Ciotach) was saved by his piper, who played this tune as a warning to his master to stay away from the castle, as his enemies were waiting there for his arrival. According to the story, the piper lost his life as a result of his action.
