The Bells! The Bells!…Scots Whay Hae’s Hogmanay Treat 2011


As Mr Scott once more raises his bottle to the promise of a New Year and a celebration of the old here’s a couple of songs that just missed out on being in the Scots Whay Hae’s Greatest Scottish album…ever.

Finally, an admission that I completeley forgot to include James Yorkston, something which highlights just how pointless such lists are. This is one of his very best and it’s called When The Haar Rolls In:


Happy New Year everybody! X
