A shieling (Gaelic àirigh) is a small house or hut once common in the hills and mountains of Scotland and northern England. The word also refers to a mountain pasture used for the grazing of cattle in summer. Farmers and their families lived there during the summer to have their livestock graze common land. Shielings were therefore associated with the transhumance system of agriculture. The huts generally fell out of use by the end of the 17th century, although in remote areas this system continued into the 18th.

The Lyrics in English are:

Last night by the sheiling was Mhairi, my beloved,
Out on the hillside by the sheiling, my Mhairi, my beloved,
Mo Mhairi, mo leannan, mo Mhairi, my beloved,
On the hillside by the sheiling, my Mhairi, my beloved.

Like the white lily floating in the peathag's dark waters,
Pure and white as the lily in the peathag's dark waters,
Mo Mhairi, mo leannan, mo Mhairi, my beloved,
Like the lily white floating in the peathag's dark waters.

Like the blue gentian blooming, wet wi' dew in the sunshine,
Are the eyes of my Mhairi, purple blue in the sunshine,
Mo Mhairi, mo leannan, mo Mhairi, my beloved,
Lily-white, pure, gentian-eyed is my Mhairi, my beloved.

Although originally written for folk instrumentation and voice, I created this arrangement for Flute and Concert (Pedal) Harp.
