Tune of the Day: Glen Lyon's Rant
Traditional Scottish strathspey
This melody first appears in John and Andrew Gow's A Collection of Slow Airs, Strathspeys and Reels, published in London around 1795.
Glen Lyon is a valley in the Perth and Kinross region of Scotland. It is the longest enclosed glen in Scotland, running for 34 miles from Loch Lyon in the west to the village of Fortingall in the east.
