Saddell Castle

Wednesday the saxtient o April seiventein fortie-sax,
Cum aerlie efternin
Ma forefowk didna firm up

On aither side or onie muir,
Naither drumlie Drummossie
Nor cauld Culloden.

Insteid thon chiels bade at hame
Keipin craps an stowin baests
Upo the byre field
Athin the Parochine o Saddell an Skipness.

Dugalds an Duncans an Peters,
Glencarradale thair laird,
Whause faithers focht
Syne bled an grat
Aw in a better cause
A centurie bygane.
