Loch Lomand a great tune. The MacFarland clan comes from the shores of Loch Lomand. So the tune has extra meaning for us. (sigh) The story that I heard, about the low road. The low road is how your soul travels after death to get home. I had heard the story that the English (nach) had a big prison full of Scottish Jackobites. Well, the care in there wasn't very good, and they died like flies. So the prisoners that were reliesed, took the "High Road" home. Those that died in captivity, they took the "Low Road".
Now listen to the song, with that in mind and it makes sence, with the never never meet again line.
Anyway my .02 worth on a pre-coffee monday. (Ack!)
