SIOR BHUAIN CULAIG. Scottish. This tune was used to accompany the Flaughter Spade Dance in which a solo dancer assumed the character of a rustic or day laborer with a flaughter spade. Emmerson (1972) believes it is the 'Speyde' referred to in the Complaynt of Scotland.

In the ‘’’Transactions of the Gaelic Society of Inverness, vol. 24’’’ (1904, p. 399) this can be found:

The Creag Liath referred to in this little madrigal is situated above Moc-Coul, near Kinloch-Laggan:--

Sior bhuian cúlaig,
Sior bhuian cúlaig,
Sior bhuian cúlaig,
Air a’ Creig Léith.
Thisa ‘g a gearrach,
Mise ‘g a rùsagh;
Sior bhuian cúlaig,
Air a’ Creig Léith.
