You may have problems listening to the music. I am in the process of changing the code to HTML 5 compliant.

These are songs from my site that were popular in Scotland, arranged in chronological order. I have struggled to put them in APPROXIMATE/BEST GUESS date order. There are some for which I have no clue as to a date, so some may appear randomly placed. If you have an educated correction, please let me know.
Also, be advised that for the early ballads, the century may not be the date the tune AND words were known. The date I have used is for the original ballad or air to which the song can be linked. The tunes and words here are modern variants of the originals.
For those interested in Jacobite Songs a better place to find a list is at The Contemplator's Short History of the Jacobite Uprisings (at the bottom of the page). Most of the well-known Jacobite songs were written long after the uprisings, so although they are all here, they are not listed together on this page.
If you wish to use any of these tunes in an archive or on a webpage READ THIS.
