they battle for dominance
the sun, the wind, the rain
each convinced of their importance
to this vast & desolate plain

spiny gorse & heather
make their home on Rannoch Moor
that bleak yet bonnie expanse
where the MacDonalds did not endure

an age-old wilderness
a silent space profound
where the slain doth sleep
in cruel unhallowed ground

mute majestic mountains
timeless secrets they keep
a stark & savage beauty
that makes me want to weep

the music of the waterfalls
a mighty peak kissed by a cloud
I am embraced by the Glencoe mountains
into their mystery I am allowed
