Notes on Gaelic Title
Gabhaidh sinn an rathad mór Gabhaidh sinne Rathad Mór / We will take the High-Way K2. We will take the highway. The opening words of a song. The tune of the song, a quickstep marching air, is called Sherriffmuir in earlier sources – see F. Buisman, ‘Transformations of piobaireachd in 18th-century Music Collections’, edited by R. D. Cannon, to be published (n.d.) – but We will take the Highway in later bagpipe publications, and most recently The High Road to Gairloch.
