Outlander: hear the Military Wives Choir perform the Outlander theme tune - Skye Boat Song

460f5c44-0df2-4e20-bee2-15204b901c3d

Listen to the Military Wives Choir perform the Skye Boat Song - the Outlander theme song - at the Highland Military Tattoo. Read the Inverness Outlanders guide to Outlander-related places to visit in and around Inverness.

The Highland Military Tattoo took place at Fort George in Inverness this September and included a fantastic performance by the Military Wives Choir, which was shared by Inverness Outlanders on their YouTube channel.

The theme tune, Skye Boat Song, is a historic Scottish folk song which recalls Bonnie Prince Charlie's escape to Skye, aided by Flora MacDonald, after the Battle of Culloden in 1746. Over the years, the song has been covered by numerous artists, including Tom Jones, Rod Stewart and Julian Lloyd Webber.

Watch the video:

The Inverness Outlanders is a group of Outlander fans who met through the love of the Outlander book series written by Diana Gabaldon. Follow their blog. For details of the Highland Military Tattoo, visit the website.
