Default Loch Maree - the air

Does anyone know anything about the air (not the march!) Loch Maree? It's on the Black Watch CD "Dark Island" as a solo by the pipe major, Steven Small. Any source for the music? I know, shouldn't be hard to work out, but would prefer to have it as composed.

Default Re: Loch Maree - the air

No, the one in the Scots Guards book page 232 is the march, not the slow air. There are two different tune with the same name. I've recently discovered this beautiful tune on YouTube as recorded by the Black Watch and also the Gordon Highlanders.

I've discovered that this air was written by Roy D. Ford, and was the winner of the Song for Scotland competition in 1966. It was recorded by singer Moira Anderson. I just located the sheet music for sale online, looking forward to learning it.
