Tune 39 - Dark Island





This beautiful and popular air was originally called Dr Mackay's Farewell to Creagorry by its composer Iain McLachlan. When David Silver of Inverness, was asked to write a song for a BBC Thriller called "The Dark Island", filmed in Benbecula, he used McLachlan‘s air and set words to it, inspired by the island of Benbecula.
