A song sung by Anne Lorne Gillies: 'Mo ghaol òigfhear a' chùil duinn' (My Love, the Youth of the Brown Hair). Anne explains that she learned the song from Willie Matheson of the School of Scottish Studies, and evidently it was composed by a young woman in St Kilda who fell in love with Iain Òg Ìleach, a folktale collector who visited many islands over a hundred years ago, collecting folktale and song.
