Highland Mary
The statue of “Rabbies” Highland Mary stands watch over the Gantocks Rocks from Dunoon during an early morning sunrise.
O pale, pale now, those rosy lips,
I aft hae kiss’d sae fondly!
And clos’d for aye, the sparkling glance
That dwalt on me sae kindly!
And mouldering now in silent dust,
That heart that lo’ed me dearly!
But still within my bosom’s core
Shall live my Highland Mary.

Highland Mary


The statue of “Rabbies” Highland Mary stands watch over the Gantocks Rocks from Dunoon during an early morning sunrise.

O pale, pale now, those rosy lips,

I aft hae kiss’d sae fondly!

And clos’d for aye, the sparkling glance

That dwalt on me sae kindly!

And mouldering now in silent dust,

That heart that lo’ed me dearly!

But still within my bosom’s core

Shall live my Highland Mary.
