Retreat March

Not a Waltz but a 3/4 retreat march written by the late great Bobby MacLeod.

Would the tune title be a reference to that well known establishment in Glencoe, Solidmahog?

I believe Bobby MacLeod used to play it in a "Glencoe" set.

BTW, thanks for two more 3/4 marches. It such a pity that there is a need to point out that they are not waltzes each time. Still, it lets people know there is a little more to 3/4 tunes.

I don’t know for sure if it’s that famous establishment at the head of Glencoe that it’s named after, but I rather fancy it was. As you point out Bobby’s "Glencoe set" would suggest it, I’d hang my coat on it, but then, it wouldn’t be the first time I’ve hung my coat on a shoogly peg……
