My heart’s in the Highlands, my heart is not here, My heart’s in the Highlands a-chasing the deer – A-chasing the wild deer, and following the roe; My heart’s in the Highlands, wherever I go. Robert Burns 1789
Beloved Alba I touched lands sacred to my ancientness and breathed the air of my own ancient spirits and it sparked a deep resurgence inside me. Ceitidh Riley 2006
