A song from Anne Lorne Gillies ((see earlier comment re permission to publish)). This song is related to the famous Skye piping family of the MacCrimmons, and how one of them was out walking on the hill one day when he heard the sound of bagpiping coming out of a cave. Well, he was never seen again, but his dog returned home as bald as an egg, with no fur. But maybe if you're walking over the Skye hills, maybe you can hear MacCrimmon still playing in the cave. The song is 'Is Truagh mi bhith gun Trì Làmhan - Dà Làimh 'sa Phìob, is Làmh sa Chlaidheamh' (It's a Pity I didn't have Three Hands, Two Hands for the Bagpipe and One for the Sword), with the song (in some versions it is sung separately) 'Uamh an Òir' (The Cave of Gold) woven through it, a song where, seemingly, the lost MacCrimmon bemoans his fate and itemises the changes that will happen in the world before he gets to return from the Cave of Gold.
