Duntroon Castle

Somehow I stumbled unto a set of 2 pipe reels
Duntoon Castle and Sandy Cameron’s at

It’s from the Young Scottish Pipers Album, this
track by Fred Morrison - he really is quite good.

I found some a few ABC versions, but quite his so I wrote it
out myself - best as I could. It’s close.

Composed by D.MacPhedran - "abcs" from a sheet music photocopy I’ve had for years, but can’t remember where who gave it to me. It’s usually just called "Duntroon".
Fred Morrison is better than "quite good". He takes a few liberties with the tune, but his playing of the 2 reels on that recording is one of my favourite pieces of Scottish music ever. Special mention should also go to the fiddle player - was it Kenny Spiers ? - and also some good driving guitar backing.

The fiddle player was Kenny Fraser.

None of those videos appear to be "available".

They all work me

Now I do admit that I’ve made the occasional youtube link blunder, but this time they do all seem
to work - Ubuntu 15.10 linux/seamonkey-2.39 - a tad obscure perhaps.
The embedded links don’t send you to the correct time though, try again, or click on the urls above the
embedded videos?
