    The Seaforth Highlanders (Ross-shire Buffs) have been the regiment of choice (or obligation, sometimes) for Lewismen since 1772.

    Deoch slàinte na Cabar Feidh ceud Feachd MacCoinnich!
    Tir nam beann, na gleann, ‘s nan gaisgeach
    Far am faigh ‘an t’eun fionn
    ‘S far am faigh am fiadh fasgadh;
    Cho fada ‘s bhitheas ceo mu beann
    ‘S ruitheas uisge le gleann;
    Maraidh cuimhneaireachd nan treun
    ‘S slàinte agus buaidh gu bragh
    Le gillean Chabar feidh!
    Cabar feidh gu brath!

    Drink to the health of the Cabarfeidh [deer's horns] and the first Regiment of Mackenzie!
    The land of hills, glens and heroes
    Where the ptarmigan thrives
    And where the red deer finds shelter;
    As long as mist hangs oer the mountains
    and water runs in the glens;
    May the deed of the brave be remembered
    And Health and Victory for ever be
    With the lads of the Cabarfeidh!
    The Cabarfeidh for ever!
