The Glendaruel Highlanders

Article by James Campbell

The Glendaruel Highlanders:- This quickstep was composed about 1860 by Alexander Fettes, Pipe Major of the City of Aberdeen Volunteers. When the Argyllshire Volunteers came under the command of Colonel Campbell of Glendaruel they appropriated the tune as their March Past and, as such, it descended to their successors, the 8th Battalion Argyll 8t Sutherland Highlanders. More recent compositions of the present century include "The Argyllehire Gathering" by John McColl, "Climbing Dunnyquaich" by D.C. Mather, "Inveraray Castle" by Pipe Major William Lawrie, "Miss Elspeth Campbell" by T. Douglas, "Campbell's Farewell to Redcastle" and "Captain Campbell (of Drum a Voisk)" by D. Galbraith.
