Tune of the Day: Trip to Hiort
This march was kindly contributed to our collection by its composer, piper Roddy Campbell from the Outer Hebrides, Scotland.
Hiort is the Scottish Gaelic name of Hirta, the largest island in the St Kilda archipelago, on the western edge of Scotland. Although inhabited for over 2000 years, this isolated archipelago has had no permanent residents since 1930. One of Scotland's six World Heritage Sites, it is one of the few in the world to hold mixed status for both its natural and cultural qualities.
