The Bonnie Lass Of Luss

A Scottish reel. Appears in Bremner’s "Collection of Scots Reels" from c. 1757, but this setting was taken from the Rook MS of c. 1840. It sounds like a few other reels, but deserves its own place here. I’ve added an E dorian transposition to make it instrument friendly.

Luss is in Argyll, on the west shore of Loch Lomond, and Scottish soap addicts might know it as Glendarroch from "Take the High Road". Probably best forgotten.
