Tha a' chuibhreann chlaistinneach seo on leabhar aig Brìghde NicCoinnich 'Piping Traditions of the North of Scotland' clo-bhuailte an toiseach ann an 1998. Tha a' chuibhreann air a leughadh le Elizabeth Parker.

'Strathpeffer and Fodderty are in the strath of the river Peffery, west of Dingwall.

John Mackenzie was a piper in the 18th century at Auchterneed, [Achterneed] near Strathpeffer. In 1745 he was too old to join the Jacobite army, but he sent his son, George, who was born in Fodderty. George was a piper throughout the campaign of 1745-1746 and escaped after Culloden, although he lived in hiding for some time. He was said to be a very good player.

'Tulloch Ard' ('high hill') is the name of two unrelated piobaireachd works. Both are associated with the MacKenzies, and are believed to have been named after a hill near Castle Leod, the seat of the MacKenzie chief. One of these works has the alternative title 'The MacKenzies' Gathering', the other probably the more frequently played today, is 'The MacKenzie's March'. The latter is found in the manuscript made around 1820 by the amateur piper, Peter Reid, who was a respected judge of piping. Angus MacKay's manuscript gives the same tune with the title 'Tulloch Ard' from Mr Reid'.

In Strathpeffer there is a small burial ground called Kinettas, which was one of the earliest Free Church graveyards in the Highlands. To find it, go to the square in the middle of the village, and take the road which leads northwest up the hill towards the golf course. Halfway up the hill is the Free Church. There, turn left and take the road opposite to the church. The burial ground lies behind the houses on the right, about a quarter of a mile from the church. It may also be reached by going right up the hill to the golf course, and taking the footpath through a little gate opposite the clubhouse. This footpath leads down to the burial ground of Kinettas.

Here lie John Ban MacKenzie and three of his four sons. Their graves are marked by two headstones. One is in memory of his two little boys who died in infancy in 1847, one as a very small baby, the other as a toddler. The family was at Taymouth in 1847, and it is not clear whether the children died there or when their parents were visiting the north.'

Bha muinntir Brìde NicCoinnich (a rugadh na Gòrdanach) à Canada is à Alba. Rugadh i ann an Sasainn ann an 1933 agus fhuair i a foghlam aig oilthighean Oxford is Ghlaschu. Mus do phòs i Alasdair MacCoinnich, a bha na einnseanair agus na phìobaire, bha i na h-òraidiche ann an seann Lochlannach aig Oilthigh Ghlaschu, ach leig i dhith a dreuchd gus an togadh i an dithis mhac aca.

An-diugh tha i na seanmhair aig còignear agus tha i air a bhith a' fuireach ann an Cataibh fad 25 bliadhna, a' sgrìobhadh leabhraichean agus artaigilean air cuspairean leithid eachdraidh na pìoba mòire agus ainmean-àite na Gàidhealtachd. An dèidh foillseachadh 'Piping Traditions of the North of Scotland' (1998), thug Comann Bratach na Croise (Saltire Society) seachad dhi duais airson na rinn i do chultar na Gàidhealtachd. Nochd an dàrna leabhar dheth, a' coimhead ri Earra-ghàidheal, ann an 2004 agus tha i an-dràsta ag obair air dualchas pìobaireachd nan Eilean Siar.
