GUEST,Jack Campin Lyr Req: Irish songs +Thomas Muir of Huntershill (23) RE: Lyr Req: Irish songs +Thomas Muir of Huntershill 02 Oct 18


The best-known song about Muir is "Scots Wha Hae". Burns drops a very strong hint in the note to the song as published: he was in southwest Scotland as Muir was landed there in chains to be taken to Edinburgh for trial (though it seems, from Jim MacLean's research, that he didn't actually see Muir in transit as I had thought).
