Many thanks for this posting.
When I was an 8 year old schoolboy at East Molesey Boys School, c1958 Mr Thompson, our Scots form master also taught us singing.
He formed a choir and taught us this and may other Scottish songs like Marie's Wedding.
We practiced hard and entered a Surrey Schools Choir contest.
Mr Thompson and this song in Gaelic will always be a fond memory.
