Notes on Gaelic Title

Albainn Bheadarach, ’s mise gad’ fhàgail dubh Albain Bheadarach A; Albain Bheadarach / ’s mise ga’d Fhagail dubh / Beloved Scotland, I leave thee gloomy K1; Alba Bheadarach / KK; Merry Scotland KK index. Beloved Scotland. Angus MacKay’s word ‘Merry’  perhaps comes from ‘Merrie England’  but the sentiment is the same.
