Set 2-05: Highland Schottische
Campbelltown Kiltie Ball/Road to the Isles

Campbelltown Kiltie Ball

This set is part of the following collections:

Two great tunes composed by Pipe Major John McLellan of Dunoon. Road to the Isles was originally titled The Bens of Jura, but he changed it to The Highland Brigade's March To Heilbronn some time later. Finally, when he was posted to Egypt, he changed the name once again, this time to The Burning Sands of Egypt. Round about 1914, Kenneth Macleod wrote words to the tune, and it became known as The Road to the Isles..
