Lord Ullin 's Daughter

The most famous commemoration of Ulva in literature is Thomas Campbell 's poem, Lord Ullin 's Daughter , written after the writer had visited the region. The opening two stanzas are as follows:

A CHIEFTAIN to the Highlands bound
Cries, "Boatman, do not tarry!
And I 'll give thee a silver pound
To row us o 'er the ferry! "
"Now who be ye would cross Lochgyle,
This dark and stormy water? "
"O I 'm the chief of Ulva 's isle,
And this, Lord Ullin 's daughter.

 This poem depicts how a Scottish chieftain and his beloved
elope to run away from her father, Lord Ullin .But as if God was also not on their side, met with a tragic death. They were engulfed by the fury of the stormy sea. Lord Ullin’s and his men chased his daughter and the chieftain on that fateful night. They soon reached the shore and tried to escape on a boat. The boat man was unwilling to row as the weather was dark and stormy. But the lovers persistence made him row. But soon they were caught in the violent storm of the sea and met their death in the lap of the waves. When Lord Ullin reached the shorewith his men, his wrath changed to grief. He found his lovely daughter drowning with one hand stretched out for help and the other around her lover. Lord Ullin repented his deeds and wanted to forgive his daughter .But it was too late now his cries went in vain. The stormy sea had already claimed his daughter and her lover.

Scotland stretches away in a spectacular fusion of wooded glens, sweeping moors, rugged coasts, towering mountains, green valleys and deep blue lakes known as Lochs. The Scottish people have long been famous for their close-knit clans organized under chieftains who often led fierce warriors to savage feuds. Lord Ullin’s daughter is one of the popular poems of Thomas Campbell which describes how a Scottish chieftain and his beloved flee her wrathful father, but their defiance leads to their deaths, in a surging stormy sea. A Chieftain who is bound to the highlands cries to the boatman not to tarry, linger or dally but would give him a silver pound to row over the ferry for them. The boatman wonders as who would it be who would want to cross Lochgyle in such a dark and stormy weather? It would be none other than the chief of Ulva’s isle; an island; along with Lord Ullin’s daughter.
Both of them fled from Lord Ullin’s men for more than three days. For if her father should find them in the glen; a deep narrow valley, especially in the mountains of Scotland; her blood would stain the heather; low, spreading plant with woody stems, small spiky leaves and purple, pink or white flowers. Lord Ullin’s horsemen rode hard behind them and if they should discover their steps, then who would cheer the bonny; lovely and attractive; bride when they have slayed her lover? The hardy highland wight; valiant and skilled in fighting; told the chieftain he is ready to go not only for the sake of money but mainly because of his winsome; pleasing because of a childlike charm and innocence; lady. By the boatman’s word the bonny bird shall not tarry in danger, for though the waves are raging; angry and furiated; white, he would still row the ferry for them.
By this the storm grew loud apace; quickly; while the water-wraith; ghost or sceptre or spirit; was shrieking. In the scowl; frown, black and dirty look; of heaven, each face grew dark as they were speaking. But still the wind blew even stronger and wilder and the night grew drearer. Adown; coming down; the glen, the armed men rode and their trampling; stamping treading and walking over; sounded nearer. The lady cries out in a loud haste to her lover and declares that even though the tempest gathered round them, she would be ready to meet the raging of the skies but not her angry father. The boat has finally left the stormy land and the stormy sea before her but something too strong for a human hand, the tempest gathered over her. Still they rowed amidst the roar of the fast prevailing waters; conquering and overcoming; Lord Ullin reached that fatal shore but his wrath; anger and exasperation; was changed to wailing; lamenting, crying and bemoaning.

In 1795 Campbell visited Mull, one of the largest islands of the Inner Hebrides (Argyllshire, Scotland), and there sketched the ballad "Lord Ullin 's Daughter," which he reworked in 1804 and finally published in 1809. (3) The ballad is the story of an attempted elopement which results in the deaths of the couple. The fleeing lovers, the young "chief of Ulva 's isle" and his "bonny bride," Lord Ullin 's daughter, have been hotly pursued by Lord Ullin and his horsemen for three days. Both know that the young man 's life will be forfeit if they are captured. They approach a boatman to whom the young man offers money if he will row them over the ferry; that is, if he will take them across Lochgyle. The boatman, a "hardy Highland wight," agrees to row them across in spite of the raging storm, not for money, but for the sake of the "winsome lady." As the pursuers approach, the boat puts out into the stormy loch. When Lord Ullin reaches the shore, he is forced to watch his daughter and her lover drown as he calls out to them, vainly promising forgiveness to the young man if only they will return.
