‘The Dark Island' was a six-part British television mini-series which premièred on 8 July 1962. While the show is no longer seen, the beautiful theme remains and is a firm favourite with Pipers throughout the world. This enchanting air was originally called ‘Dr. Mackay's Farewell to Creagorry' by its composer. Iain MacLachlan.

This requested arrangement for Bagpipes and Concert Band by Geoff Kingston, with its rich orchestration and bold underpinning harmonic structure, captures the beauty and magnificence of this charming melody.
