Alan Titchmarsh's Great British Discovery
This well-known song, evoking the largest Scottish loch, was first published in 1841. There are many theories about the meaning of the song, most of which are connected to the Jacobite Uprising of 1745. It has been recorded by many performers over the years, including the rock band AC/DC. A notable recent recording is Nicola Benedetti's on her album, Homecoming.
