A Moray care home has created a heartfelt tribute to the Scotland squad as they gear up for Euro2024. 

Speyside Care Home in Aberlour has written and recorded a stirring rendition of Flower of Scotland to inspire the national team ahead of the tournament.

Last year the care home formed its own choir, the Heart Strings Choir. Since then, they’ve been touring neighbouring care homes and recording their own versions of classic songs like Climb Every Mountain and Lean on Me.

Speyside Activities coordinator Moya Boonzaaier, who performs with the Choir, said: “Our residents are excited about Euro2024 and wanted to wish the Scotland squad good luck as they head to Germany. We reworked the lyrics of ‘Flower of Scotland’ specially for Euro2024. We hope it inspires Scotland to play with pride and passion and send their opponents home to think again!”

The choir were supported by piper Eli Cowie and Cameron Hay, both music students of Moya.

The revised song lyrics read:

Our team of Scotland

Speyside support you once again

Go play and win for

Our land with hill and glen

And stand against them

Compete in the Euros

And send them homeward

To think again…
