This tune was written as a lament for Scots that were killed at the Battle of Flodden in 1513. Although the original words are unknown, the melody was recorded in c. 1615-25 in the John Skene of Hay
yards Manuscript as "Flowres of the Forrest." Song of the Isles.
Dark Isle Piper Remarks:
This moment playing the Bagpipes in Glencoe was extraordinary. The Sun rays were dancing and giving the sense of joy and peace where there was once great tragedy. The way the pipes mournfully echoed in this Glen had a sense of remembrance. In memory of the terrible tragedy that occurred in this Glen back in 1692 on February 13th in the early morning hours between the MacDonald and Campbell Clans. I felt it was the perfect tune for the moment. Remembering the Fallen MacDonald Chief, 33 Men, 2 Women and 2 children.
