MacKintosh Of Borlum's Salute


Brigadier William MacKintosh, Laird of Borlum in the shire of Inverness, came out for James Stuart in both 1715 and 1719. He paid dearly for his devotion to the cause. After the indecisive Battle of Sherriffmuir in 1715 he escaped to France.


In 1719 he had returned from exile in France, bringing with him a troop of Scottish and Spanish mercenaries to fight unsuccessfully at the Battle of Glenshiel. He was captured later and jailed in Edinburgh Castle.


He was born in 1662 and died in 1743. Most of his years after the rebellion of 1719 were spent incarcerated in Edinburgh Castle.


The composer is for this piobaireachd is unknown. The tune has the flavor of Black Donald's March.
