The Best of Capercaillie draws on material from their six albums prior to 1998 and includes some of the best known of the band's songs - among them the Gaelic single Coisich a Ruin (the first Gaelic Top 40 single), the Youth remix of Miracle of Being, the theme song from Rob Roy - Ailein Duinn - a 1998 version of Inexile featuring the African vocalist Sibeba, and a live version of Breisleach, a track used often on television.

The album captures the full breadth of the band whose musical quest has always been to stretch the boundaries of Celtic and World music. The musical prowess of Donald Shaw (accordion, keyboards), Manus Lunny (bouzouki) and Charlie MacKerron (fiddle) is matched only by the peerless voice of Karen Matheson.
