  Eight Men of Moidart

Eight Men of Moidart is from the playing of Bert Shorthouse. The title refers to an incident when Bonnie Prince Charlie landed in Moidart in 1745; seven fishermen observed him arrived and performed a dance in the sand with glee. They were one man short for the eightsome dance, so they used a spade stuck in the sand for the eighth.
