CRARAE. Scottish, Reel. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB'. Crarae is a village on the banks of Loch Fyne in Argyll and Bute, on the west coast of Scotland. Today it's the site of magnificent gardens, established in the early 20th century by Grace, Lady Campbell. Prior to that the site was probably better-known for a megalithic ruin, a good example of a Clyde chambered cairn and the nearby round cairn, known as the 'Fairy Knowe'.
