Scope and Contents

Song entitled 'Laoidh Na h Inghinne' collected from Alasdair Donullach [Alexander MacDonald], Port-righ [Port Rìgh/Portree, An t-Eilean Sgitheanach/Isle of Skye] beginning 'La dhomh romh 'm Fheinn a muigh, 'S mi na m' shuidhe air Tulach-coire-ciar'. The song is composed of twenty-four lines. The text has been written across transversely with a note from the Inverness Courier of 19 March 1866 stating that four of the oldest inhabitants of Portree had passed away in the course of a month, to which Carmichael has added that one of those inhabitants was this informant. He has, however recorded the informant as Alasdair but the quote from the Inverness Courier refers to Angus.
