track 14b should be "……..North Tolsta" maybe?

The lassie in question wouldn’t happen to be daughter of Calum and Margaret perchance?

wow, thanks for the details… I was about to edit part of them, when I got other things to do… and I didn’t have half as much as you !

Perhaps you could submit the other recordings ?
