(1995) 13 tracks: To the Moon * Claire in Heaven * Nil Si nGra * Why Won't You Touch Me? * You * La Paella Grande * The Crooked Mountain * Ailein Duinn * God's Alibi * Fear-Allabain * Rob Roy Reels * The Price of Fire * Eastern Reel.

The band spent the early part of 1995 writing music for and appearing in the Hollywood movie, Rob Roy and then began work on the album. They enlisted the help of Fred Morrison, the Scottish champion piper and the band's sound took another huge step forward.

The album contains Ailein Duinn, the theme song from Rob Roy which features the renowned piper Davy Spillane, and 'Claire in Heaven' a powerful song from Manus with an electrifying instrumental section from Charlie McKerron on fiddle, Marc Duff on whistles and Fred on pipes.

"Capercaillie have emerged as the Gaelic band most likely to... It's hard to see how they or anyone else can do better than this" (Q Mag ****)

"Matheson's gorgeously heart sore vocal, and the song's mystical ambience and drifting cadences evoke a deep sensation of yearning rarely found in other strands of popular or folk music" (The Times)
