The MacGregor's Gathering was written by Sir Walter Scott in 1816, for "Albyn's Anthology".  The song was adapted to a very old tune used by the MacGregors when they were gathering for battle,  The song alludes to the long series of severe treatment the clan received, their resultant lawlessness, and of the cruel genocide twice perpetrated on our extended family by the British government.
