The Scottish Anthem At least, four tunes can pretend to represent Scotland : - Flower of Scotland : this tune is played at rugby matches to replace... God save the Queen, - Scotland the Brave : a relatively recent tune again, from the early twentieth century, - Amazing Grace, - and, last but not least, Scots Wha Hae named by Robert Burns, the famous scottish poet, who put his words towards a very ancient tune (Hey Tuttie Tatie) played at Bannockburn (1314).

Scottish Tunes for Highland Bagpipe
You'll find for each tune several informations like the score of course but also the lyrics and the origins of the air. The tunes are classified in several groups : click on each air to get the whole description. About the scores : The tunes played with the Highland Bagpipe are mostly written in the keys of A (with a natural G) and D, according to the scottish writing. Besides, as we play the A or D note from the score on the bagpipe, we hear a B flat or a E flat, so that the reel pitch is an halftone above. Some of these scores have a second title, that is the name of the air related to the song. You'll also find some scores in two groups instead of one : that is due to different possibilities of playing the tune. For example, some of them can be played as a march or as a dance, others as a slow air or a march.
