In the grounds of Ross Priory standing on the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond admiring the awe-inspiring scenery 🌊🏔🌳 The Loch crosses over the Highland Boundary Fault, separating the Lowlands of central Scotland and the Highlands 🏴 The famous ‘Loch Lomond’ song was originally published in 1841 by an unknown composer and has been arranged and recorded by a plethora of musicians over the years.
The traditional lyrics are as follows:
By yon bonnie banks and by yon bonnie braes,
Where the sun shines bright on Loch Lomond,
Where me and my true love were ever wont to gae,
On the bonnie, bonnie banks o' Loch Lomond.
O ye'll tak' the high road, and I'll tak' the low road,
And I'll be in Scotland a'fore ye,
But me and my true love will never meet again,
On the bonnie, bonnie banks o' Loch Lomond. 'Twas there that we parted, in yon shady glen,
On the steep, steep side o' Ben Lomond,
Where in soft purple hue, the highland hills we view,
And the moon coming out in the gloaming.
O braw Charlie Stewart, dear true, true heart,
Wha could refuse thee protection,
Like the weeping birk on the wild hillside,
How graceful he looked in dejection
The wee birdies sing and the wildflowers spring,
And in sunshine the waters are sleeping.
But the broken heart it kens nae second spring again,
Though the waeful may cease frae their grieving.
