A big jig composed by Allan MacDonald. I learned this tune at a fiddle workshop a couple of weeks ago. Well…I thought I learned it. Later, I listened to the version of it on a Daimh album, and realized that what was taught at our fiddle workshop was only the first two parts! Lo and behold, the full pipe version, which I’ve here straightened and simplified, is online at Ronald MacDonald’s site: http://www.rmacd.com/music/moidart-collection/sample-two.pdf

Version 2 is a slightly less simplified version, with snaps and some of the more straightforward grace notes for non-pipe instruments. I won’t burden the site with where I’m inclined to throw in triplets.
