I remember first going to see Runrig in 1975 or thereabouts, not quite sure. Back then they were unknown, going from the Isle of  Skye where they first started, I believe. I should know I am from the Islands myself. In the early days you knew they were going to get somewhere. They are an absolutely fantastic Gaelic Rock Band. They are famous the world over.  Runrig are probably famous for Loch Lomond. There have been a few different versions over the years but listen and watch the whole clip. You will enjoy.

The amazing thing is a German Bundesliga football team, FC Koln use the song as their anthem. I should re phrase, they are definately using the tune, the words I did not understand, it was in German.
