Thread Name: Lyr Req: Cairnamount / Cairn o' Mount
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Cairnamount
The Cairn o Mount Road rises to nearly 1500 FT between Banchory, on Deeside, and Fettercairn. In good weather, really beautiful, but it is always one of the first roads to be mentioned on the weather and travel reports as being closed by snow!
The longer version of the song is a favourite of several singers from the NE of Scotland, such as Geordie Murieson, Jock Duncan, Joe Aitken (I think I've heard them all do it!)
Sadly Malcolm Douglas is no longer with us, hence the link not working.
