Default Versions of 'Loch Maree' ?

I have the GS McLennan music score for 'Loch Maree' but when you go onto utube and type in this tune the 'Black Watch' (Dark Isle) is very slow and a different tune all together. Anyone know what the tune name is they are playing. It is beautiful, slow and haunting.

I'm not sure it's a "tune", more of an orchestral piece.

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.
