Hear, hear!
And adding to the list of (still alive) bothy balladeers and singers of songs from around that area, Jock Duncan, Shona Donaldson, Hector Riddell, Geordie Murison, Joe Aitken, Jim and Kate Taylor, Allan Taylor, Russell ?, Ian Russell, Danny Couper.
When my parents were alive, they used to live in Ellon, and a drive around the countryside there meant another song place name around every corner!
And going up a bit further into the north-east corner, you'll find Mormond Braes, Farewell tae Tarwathie, The Bonnie Ship the Diamond, Macpherson's Farewell, etc.
