This tune was written by the great piper Ross Ainslie.
The Taybank is a great music pub in Dunkeld, once owned and run by singer Dougie MacLean and is well worth a visit if you are in the area.
Great tune but here’s a few wee mistakes in the transcription here…
This is how it goes……

Revising Taybank Shenanigans
Thanks bogman, my bad. I’ve changed the abc, I’ll go and relearn it tomorrow. :) I just got a bit confused by bar 10, it’s to short, i think its just a typo. Was the rest/break in bar 11 actually written into the original music or is that just where a flute or whistle player normally takes a breath, when i’ve heard it before i haven’t noticed anyone put in the rest.
I found another recording of this tune on myspace played along with clueless (G Duncan) and Andrew Browns Reel (A Bain), it’s the first tune on the third track on the playlist.

Hi Matt, no problem, and sorry, there should be an f after the A in bar10 there, should have checked my abc. The rest in bar 11 is in the original tune. Cracking tune, quite tricky for the whistle though with these 3rd and 4th bars.
