The Trossachs

Essentially, in harp-style, but written for the Highland pipes. Also works well on small pipes with strong, accoustic string instruments, like 12-string guitar or fiddle. Best of all, though, with a Celtic harp!

The Trossachs is, for those who don't know Scotland, an area of outstanding rural beauty, not all that far out from the lowlands.

David, this tune is unbelievable !! You should have your tune book published if you have not already. Do you play it at that faster tempo? When I downloaded it I slowed the tempo down to 29 and liked it a lot better that way.

I thought I would put my two cents in the hat here. I did not re-arrange anything but just transposed a few chords into the piece for a mandolin. I played it on the smallpipes alongside that mandolin and a Celtic harp. It was unbelieveable. A great tune whether played up-tempo a little or slower. Very medieval sounding! I love it!
