Archibald MacDonald of Keppoch


From the book “Scottish Slow Airs” by Corrina Hewat. Format: PDF (1 page)


This tune was first published by Captain Simon Fraser of Ardachie, near Fort Augustus.

The Airs and Melodies Peculiar to the Highlands of Scotland and the Isles (1816) contained many works collected from various sources during the period 1715-1745.

The MacDonalds of Keppoch were a distinguished branch of Clan MacDonald, who supported the Stewart monarchs in the 17th century, culminating with their participation in the Jacobite risings of the 18th century. As a result of their support for the Jacobite cause they lost their lands in Lochaber/Roy Bridge
