Faclan 's Ceòl le | Words & Music by Brian Ó hEadhra

Tha cleachdadh agus seilbh fhearainn gu math cudromach an-diugh. Tha mòran obrach ri dhèanamh gus leigeil leinn ath-cheangal a dhèanamh ris an àrainneachd dhùthchail againn fhìn.

Inspired by the Norwegian hutting movement as well as by Scottish initiatives such as 'A Thousand Huts', Brian wrote this song to celebrate this return of the people to the land and to nature.


Thigibh, togamaid bothan sa choille sa ghleann
Air fail e li leo, air fail e li leo
Far am faigh sinn fois aotrom bho smuaintean tha trom
Air fail e li leo, air fail e li leo
Fad fad às a' bhaile, taobh siar is ceann thall
Air làrach cruinn lurach far an togadh sinn fonn
Bidh na h-oidhcheannan goirid is ar n-iomagain gann
Bidh na boisean a' bualadh a' bhùird leis gach rann
Agus togaidh sinn glainne dar muinntir 's dar clann
'S ann leinn-ne am fearann is cumar e beò

Come, let us build a bothy in the forest in the glen
Where will we get a reprieve from heavy thoughts
Far from the town, to the west, over yonder
On a wee camp where we'd have a tune
The nights will be short and our worries few
The hands will beat the tables with every verse
And we will raise a glass to our people and to our children
The hard life of the sheiling is gone in the mist
We own the land and we will keep it alive
