Oh to be a teenager

And walk the Appin ways

To see again the moonbeams

Light up the castle walls

The sentinel of Appin

Stands proud in Laich loch

And guards the country people

Around its shores that dwell

Yes Appin it is magic

The fairies make it so

The knolls are there a plenty

You’ll see them as you go

If you’ve never been to Appin

Just trim your sails and go

For there you’ll find the ether

That is tonic to the soul

I’m glad I lived in Appin

Twas there I learnt the skills

That set me on the road to life

And helped me climb its hills.

Jessie Henderson, 2009
