Item Description

The Lovat Scouts is a lively quickstep, which Skinner wrote in the bagpipe idiom - note the little grace notes in the main part. The simple accompaniment is very much in his style. He adds a variation in his inimitable fashion! Click on the audio link below (cd28a) to listen to Skinner playing it. The Kirrie Kebbuck was a large cheese that the Laird o' Thrums (A MacPherson) cut up with a saw. It is possible to imagine him doing this in time to the music! Click on cd25b to hear Skinner's recording.
