The titles appear both in Gàidhlig and English over the tunes, which are written with grace notes and repeats.
I picked it up piecemeal from various sessions around Edinburgh and the Highlands; the version seems almost identical to what Blazin’ Fiddles and Julie Fowlis play
NB the ABC shows GMaj where the pipers play A mixolydian 8using the same notation, drones sounding A). Nevertheless it turns out that playing this tune on a G drone is very appealing. A few notes (notably the c’s) might need to be changed to keep it wholly melodic.
