The well-known tune The Dark Island was written by accordianist Iain MacLachlan from Benbecula an island of the Outer Hebrides in the Atlantic Ocean off the west coast of Scotland. The island is also known in Gaelic poetry as An t-Eilean Dorcha "the dark island".
I have dedicated this version to the 'Isle of Skye' which lies just East of Benbecula and is a favourite holiday location of my son.
From the photos I can see why!
For my inspiration of this version I have tried to combine the gentle sunrise which slowly reveals the harsh but stunning beauty of the island.
I post this as the New Year slowly spreads across our planet showing what a beautiful place this is.
The beautiful Backing Track is by Pete Korving and was a joy to play to.
