Cuilionn Lyr Req: Loch Maree (10) RE: Lyr Req: Loch Maree 24 Feb 11


I can't think of any song more carefully designed to provoke mondegreens than "Loch Maree." The occasional Gaelic words and (to this non-Loch Maree-ite, anyway) obscure local references and terminology defy accurate transcription. I listened to Sara Grey's recording of it for years, trying to get it right--eventually gave up, and that's not something I do often when it comes to linguistic challenges!

(That said, Sara Grey's version is really lovely.)
