As all good descendants of Walter Spreull know, Cowden Hall was the seat of the Spreull family from the 1300's to the 1600's. Today little remains of any structures, but some ruins from the 1600's can still be found. Much to my delight, I discovered that the Scottish musician and composer, Finlay MacDonald (Head of piping studies at the National Piping Centre in Glasgow), has composed a rather haunting melody about Cowden Hall. Enjoy the song here -
Beautiful tune. Thanks for posting!
