They both represent a milestone of RUNRIG’s success story. At the end of 2007 they got into the top ten of the UK charts with a remix of their song „Loch Lomond“, which is held as the inofficial national anthem of Scotland. Following the greatest and most successful tour RUNRIG ever played in Germany (100.000 visitors), a RUNRIG song collection will be released on a 3 CD / 1 DVD box – the definite RUNRIG song collection:
