1 Scottish Soldier (Isla, Gordon, Pipe Band)
This inspiring sixties hit, written by Andy Stewart, has been re-worked by Isla. The tempo increases with each verse and chorus as more instruments are added. Finally the Pipes and Drums of the Royal Regiment of Scotland enter playing ‘Green Hills of Tyrol’. Solo piping by Pipe Major Gordon Walker. This award winning track is outstanding.
2 Heilaní Sodger (Isla)
A beautiful song about a girl falling for her Highland soldier.
3 A Gordon For Me - medley (Isla)
March of the Cameron Men
Johnny Cope

An unusual medley by Isla which includes the ancient song about the ĎCameron mení.

An excellent version of this amusing song from the Napoleonic era.
