Aidan O’Rourke tune

From Lau’s Lightweights and Gentleman. A lovely, lyrical tune.

Aidan wrote this after climbing up Gallowhill in Cromarty (I think whilst he was musician in residence there). It was there that the people of Cromarty were able to see the smoke and hear the guns during the Battle of Culloden.
