Muckin' o' Geordie's Byre
#3
JAJ: "It predates "Bonnie Strathyre" then?"

Somewhat.  Smile

There's a 1953 film about the school in Crieff with Walter Carr playing a schoolmaster, and the rest of the people actual Crieff residents. At the end they sing "Bonnie Strathyre" and I've always puzzled about it. Why? 

Someone told me it was the school song. And again I say, why? Crieff is not in Strathyre, it's in Strathearn. Strathyre is miles away. To make it worse, there is a song called "Bonnie Strathearn" [1] - why not use that?

[1] = featured in my book "Bonnie Strathearn - Songs and Music from Crieff and Strathearn" (full details).
