Bog an Lochan is a popular strathspey in the north and west of Scotland. It is also popular in Cape Breton where it is played slightly differently. The tune is found in James Stewart Robertson's Athole Collection of 1884 but is also known as Athole Cummers and can be found published as such in both Kerr's Collection and Robert Bremner's collection of the 1750s. There are several puirts (mouth music) sung to this tune.

This extract was taken from the cd 'Collectors' Items' played by Duncan Dyker and Friends and was produced by the Highland Music Trust in 2004.
