D dorian…

… is the key of this poor, orphaned tune.

X2 Key

… I do believe that EMix was intended (instead of DMix). However, as the Gs are natural, it’s really E dorian.

Carron Streams, X:3

This is the intro "air" to the tune, played on a Low F, I think. Davy must change whistle for the main jig but I haven’t worked out what yet. I’ve transcribed it because it stands well on its own and the use of additional flats/sharps gives it a haunting tone.
