Here’s the Tannahill Weavers setting …

Of the The Smith Of Chilliechassie, a traditional Scottish reel. This is not the setting most Highland pipers are used to. I first saw a setting like this from a book of Cape Breton fiddle tunes. This is perhaps a fiddle setting, with the A, B, C, & D parts in A dorian and the E & F parts in B minor. (I submitted the tune as Amix though just to make sure the C#s were there for the E & F parts.)

FYI, on the recording the TWs repeat the A & B parts to end the tune.

Enjoy! Cheers!
