Profile Highlander were an early 90’s electronic folk rock band from Fife, Scotland. Their only studio album was the hit 1992 release, Born To Be A Warrior. It is a concept album following the story of the fictional Rory – a volunteer fighter in Robert the Bruce’s rebel army in the war against the oppressive English king, Edward I. It charts the progress of Bruce’s eventually successful campaign to become King and have Scotland recognised as an independent nation once again.  Highlander never recreated the success of that first release and it now fills the shelves of gift shops up and down Scotland, most notably in Eilean Donan castle in Skye as it features on the front cover of later CD reprint of the album. Good variety, good guitarwork, good voice, fantastic concept !

    I had the privilege of seeing the band live at a gig in The Parkway Hotel in 1992. The band were fantastic. It’s a shame that they broke up.

  2. Shame that Alan McLeod reneaged on a deal that we had regarding the tartan that I had designed for them. Clothed the entire band in this new tartan and supplemented his income.
