The Bonnie Banks o' Loch Lomond

The Bonnie Banks o' Loch Lomond is a traditional Scottish song first published in 1841, which lyrically praises the beauty of the largest loch in Scotland.(1) The song was translated as Lomond ngeng by Nick Nicholas in 1995 and revised in 2001. (2) This translation refers to Scotland with the historic term "Alba", derived from Scottish Gaelic, although the Klingon term SIqotlan was revealed for the country in 2019.
