Ranald Alasdair MacDonald of Keppoch
MacDonald of Keppoch Clan Song

Welcome Clann Ranald
Adapted by Mac Mhic Raonuill from his original
composition 1977, for the inaugural ceremony in Fort
William, Lochaber, September 2006.

Welcome Clan Ranald welcome t-Lochaber
Land of high Mountains that sweep to the sea
Here lies the bones of your ancestors mighty
Kings of the Celts of the highest degree


Welcome, Welcome, Welcome Clann Ranald
Welcome t-Lochaber the land we hold dear
Welcome, Welcome, Welcome Clann Ranald
Welcome t-Lochaber we're glad that you're here

In kinship and friendship we'll gather together
To celebrate fully this very special year
For hearts' that are yearning and pride in returning
Ceud mile' fa'ilte mo bhrathair mo chridhe

Note: Got in an email message from the Chief with this song...

These are the words of the Clan Song that I wrote back in 1977 for the Welcoming of the Clan Donald to Scotland during the International Gathering of that year and sang it on stage in Princes Street Gardens where I organised the welcoming concert. The song was transposed into pipe music for the Royal Engineers (Scottish VR) Pipe Band the only Pipe Band in the Royal Engineers and the only Pipe Band wearing the MacDonald of Keppoch tartan plaid.
