Lochaber has featured on a map of the most sung about places in the world.

A new interactive music map showing the world’s most sung about places features a top three of New York, London and Paris – with Lochaber an unexpected inclusion.

The classic anthem ‘Letter from America’ by The Proclaimers pushed Lochaber onto the list, with its famous lyric ‘Lochaber no more’.

The interactive music map – the first of its kind – analysed more than 200,000 songs to discover places around the world mentioned the most in songs since the 1960s.
