Scot has been away this week doing one of his other traditions - Scottish thatching.  Here's one of the more unusual photos from the job - smoking the roof from the inside.

A quick message from himself: "Thanks to all of you who have bought the new album. The office floor looks a bit like the home of under tens on Christmas morning - packaging, scissors and tape everywhere. I've caught up with the orders, so all of you have made one, your CDs are on the way! Thanks again. For those who left me a personal message, I'll respond when the paper flood subsides."

Dear Blog Followers,

Scot's Album is released!
After much anticipation and requests from tour guests to be "kept informed", Gàir nan Clàrsach - The Harps' Cry, is here.

The collection comprises traditional music and Tales (in Gàidhlig and English) from the Highlands, including songs centuries old performed by guest singers Rena Gertz and the national treasure that is Margaret Bennett, with a backdrop of music that is modern yet traditional.

The eleven track CD is limited to 200 hand-numbered copies - like a rare whisky - and comes with a six page booklet giving the fuller details of the Tales and songs. The CD purchase also give you a free download version of the album.  You can of course choose the download version only, if that's the way you like your music.

How to listen and buy?  Go to

Thanks to all of you who have supported and encouraged this collection.  We hope you enjoy it.
