The Isle of Skye, off the northwest coast of Scotland, was home to Flora MacDonald, made famous by aiding the escape of Bonnie Prince Charlie following his defeat at the Battle of Culloden in 1746. The Skye Boat Song is not only a narrative. It is also a tribute to the Romantic history of Scotland and one of its great heroines and a nostalgic reminder of the greatness of the Scottish way of life and its traditions.
