Dunkeld House

It could be anywhere… Dunkeld is also a Surname.

“Could be anywhere” - but not very likely….

Since this jig appears in the "Niel Gow Collection of Scottish Dance Music", and Niel Gow lived at Inver, near Dunkeld, in Perthshire, I think it a safe bet to assume that the tune title refers to that particular building or estate, "Mix O’Lydian". Never met anyone in my life with the surname "Dunkeld", [ which doesn’t mean that they don’t exist somewhere ]. Decide for yourself which you you think is the more probable.
