Mingulay Boat Song   Sir Hugh Roberton (1874-1952) was conductor of the famous Orpheus Choir of Glasgow for which he made many choral arrangements of Scots songs. This was one of them published in his ‘Songs Of The Isles’ (1950). The lyrics were written in the 1930s and added to a segment of an old Gaelic melody, Òran na Comhachaig (the Creag Ghuanach portion) from Brae in Lochaber.  Mingulay is an uninhabited island with high cliffs with nesting seabirds, at the southern end of the Outer Hebrides. Fishermen returning home from the Atlantic would feel that they were nearly home when they sailed past the islands.
