Dougie MacLean, OBE (born 27 September 1954 in Dunblane) is a Scottish singer-songwriter, composer, multi-instrumentalist and record producer. Described by music critic Craig Harris in Allmusic as "one of Scotland's premier singer-songwriters", MacLean's most famous pieces include "The Gael", from his 1990 album The Search, which was adapted by Trevor Jones as the main theme to The Last of the Mohicans (1992); and "Caledonia", from his first album. The latter has been covered by numerous popular singers and groups, and called Scotland's unofficial national anthem.
