The Skye Boat Song" is a late 19th century Scottish song recalling the journey of Prince Charles Edward Stuart (Bonnie Prince Charlie) from Uist to the Isle of Skye as he evaded capture by Government troops after his defeat at the Battle of Culloden in 1746. Sir Harold Boulton, 2nd Baronet composed the lyrics to an air collected by Anne Campbelle MacLeod in the 1870's and their line "Over the Sea to Skye", now a cornerstone of the tourism industry on the Isle of Skye.

The lyrics were penned by Sir Harold Boulton in the 1870s, and the melody was written down by Annie MacLeod based on a Gaelic rowing song she had heard in Skye called "Cuachag Nan Craobh" meaning "The Cuckoo in the Grove". Although the song structure is the same, her melody is sufficiently different that it might be described as an original song. This arrangement of "The Skye Boat Song" can be played as a piano solo or to accompany singers. More folk songs can be found in our article about Folk Music & Songs. The Skye Boat Song" has now reached a new audience when Bear McCreary used it as the title song for the TV Series "Outlander".
