Nairne (Caroline Oliphant), Baroness (1766-1845), was born at Gask, in Perthshire, and belonged to a family of strong Jacobite opinion. In 1806 she married Major Nairne, who became Baron upon the reversal of an attainder. She lived at Edinburgh, and then, as a widow, upon the Continent and in Ireland, finally returning to Gask. Under the signature "B. B." she wrote many songs, among them being Caller Herrin, Land of the Leal, Laird of Cockpen, and The Auld House.

“Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”
2 Corinthians 4:16-18
