Welcome to the world of Bratach Bana, a name for ever associated with the mythical fairy flag of the Clan MacLeod on display at Dunvegan Castle (that’s the flag on the top right hand corner of our website. Bratach Bana is also the name of one of the North East of Scotland's newest traditional folk bands. Formed out of the talented membership of the Ugie Folk Club in Stuartfield, Bratach Bana reflect the traditional appeal of the magical flag they name themselves after.

In July 07 Bratach Bana released their debut album “Shetland Lights” at a formal launch at the Heugh Hotel in Stonehaven as one of the opening events at this years Stonehaven Folk Festival.

Shetland Lights features a broad mix of material from the diverse pen’s of Bob Dylan and John Martyn as well as from more traditional Scottish songsmiths such as Dick Gaughan and Dougie Maclean. The album also features a fine selection of Bratach Bana’s own material including the rousing title track Shetland Lights.
