    Well Euan that is very generous of you mate! this is thread and the address is on the bottom, they are in Edinburgh       Title of the book   - Flower of the West - The Runrig Song Book

Runrig are Scotland's most famous celtic folk rock band.  Over the years this powerful band have toured the world gathering  fans everywhere for their blend of exciting, emotional Gaelic music fused with rock rhythms. There have been lineup changes, but Runrig still command an awesome following.

This magnificent hard cover book has all of the music and lyrics for all the published Runrig songs (1975 - 2000) with notes to accompany each song, providing anecdote, information, and historical fact. The book contains photography ranging from personal collections and archive, to the work of some of the most significant photographers to have worked in the Highlands over the past decades. This book is an insight into not only the genesis of the songs themselves, but also touches on the changing lifestyle and culture of the Scottish islands throughout the latter half of the twentieth century. A changing culture within which Runrig themselves have played a part. A beautiful book!
""Quality photographs,band history, lyrics and chords for budding musicans. An explanation of the origins of each song which is fascinating. This is what all songbooks should be like! " FS Customer. ?27.57 (?30.63 for first time customers) -    Foot Stompin' Celtic Music

Hi lass, the forum has been a bit quiet in recent times.  Unfortunately I dont know any South Africans in Scotland.
