Transcription based on the recording of Gary Innes and Ewan Robertson’s *Shout* album. Not sure if it’s one of Gary’s tunes or not, but it’s a cracker.

I wasn’t sure if it was a strathspey or not -- it could just be a slow reel with some swing. Hopefully someone with more expertise on the board will shed some light on this 😉

Dmaj fingering for whistle/flute:

Pretty sure this was written by Donald Shaw.

Oh and (I should have written this before, I know!) it can be heard on Mairearad Green and Anna Massie’s album being played as reel.

They were on Horo Gheallaidh playing it too :D
