Tune of the Day: Mingulay to Vatersay

Jig by Roddy Campbell

Today's tune was kindly contributed to our collection by its composer, piper Roddy Campbell from the isle of Barra in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland.

Vatersay, just south of Barra, is the southernmost inhabited island in the Outer Hebrides. The Isle of Mingulay lies just south of Vatersay, but was abandoned by its last inhabitants in 1912. Today it can be accessed by boat tours and charters, and it is well worth a trip, particularly for its important seabird populations, including puffins, black-legged kittiwakes, and razorbills, which nest in the high sea-cliffs.
