The Meikleour beech hedge near Blairgowrie is the longest hedge in Britain and the highest of its kind in the world. It was planted in 1745 and it is thought the men who planted it were called to fight in the Jacobite Rebellion and none of them returned alive. In tribute the trees were allowed to grow and the hedge acts as a living landmark to them.

This tune is part of my James Scott Skinner Collection of tunes; for others, check out the Composers Index.
