There is also Rob Sargent's dance Calum's Road (Rathad Chalum) in his
New Ruthven Autumn Collection. The book Calum's Road by Roger
Hutchison, describes how Calum Macleod of Rassay, which is off the coast
of the island of Skye, built the road from his croft to the nearest road
head, two miles away. The tune was written in honour of the road.
