BRIDGE OF GAIRN, THE. Scottish, Strathspey. D Major. Standard tuning. AAB. Composed by Alexander Walker (1819-1898), born in Rhynie, Scotland. He was employed as a gardener for Sir Charles Forbes at Castle Newe, Aberdeenshire, who became his patron. At about age 50 he emigrated to Northhampton, Massachusetts, where he continued to compose (the output of which is lost) and to run a prosperous farm. The Bridge of Gairn is a hamlet near Ballater, Aberdeenshire, at one end of the Pass of Ballater, an ice-worn ravine.

Printed source: Walker (A Collection of Strathspeys, Reels, Marches, &c.), 1866; No. 93, p. 32.
