Aitken, Bridgegate Music

Achachrome was the Gaelic name of the abandoned Campbell family croft in Kilmartin Glen, Argyll.

Linsey wrote this for Ken, an atmospheric reflection of the spirit of the ghosts of the Highland Clearances and Scots emigrants, blending the pipe drones and haunting ‘cello lines together.

The ancient Kilmartin Glen hosts many Neolithic and Bronze Age sites and the remains of the Scots Fortress of Dunadd where the first Kings of Scotland were crowned.
