Cumha Choire Cheathaich

Back to song list

The title of this song means ‘Lament for the Misty Corrie’.  A corrie is a dip between two hills or mountains, usually caused by glacial erosion.  The Gaelic word ‘coire’ means a pot, or cauldron, as the shape of the valley resembles a cooking pot.

On the Isle of Skye, there are frequent mists, which fill the corries in the hilly parts of the island.  The Isle of Skye is sometimes called ‘The Island of Mists’.
