October 3rd

Today is the anniversary of The Battle of Glenlivat in 1594, when the Earl of Huntly defeated the Royal troops led by the Earl of Argyll.

"Glenlivat" can be found in Alexander Walker's collection of 1866.
"Glenlivet" is in Kerr's Merry Melodies, Book 1 (c1875), and has been recorded by Alison Kinnaird, The Whistlebinkies, and Ceolbeg.
"The Glenlivet" by James Scott Skinner is named after the whisky of the same name, and has been recorded by fiddlers Angus Cameron and J F Dickie, and under the name "Jimmy Lyon's Highland" by the Irish group Altan.
