Journey Back to Arran


Journey Back to Arran

A song written by Gill Bowman with P4-P7 of Pirnmill Pimary School on Arran. Gill says that she was talking with the class about the beautiful red hills of Arran on the String Road in the morning sun.

'We started to think about other things that are good about Arran, like the deer, the wildlife and the feeling of home. Everything we thought about built up a beautiful sweet song. But is it a song about coming back to Arran or coming back to someone you love'?

Journey Back to Arran sung by Gill Bowman and P4-P7 from Pirnmill Primary School, who wrote the song together From Making New Scots Songs, New Makars Trust 16.
