Tune of the Day: Eriskay Love Lilt
This lovely little love song is named after Eriskay, a small island in the southern section of the Westen Isles of Scotland. It is famous as the place where Bonnie Prince Charlie first landed at the start of his ill-fated Jacobite Rebellion in 1745.
When I’m lonely, dear white heart,
Black the night and wild the sea,
By love’s light, my foot finds
The old pathway to me.
Thanks to Peter for suggesting this tune!
