A real danceable player from Ryan’s Mammoth Collection.

Highland Skip

A setting of a tune better known in Ireland as "The Boyne Hunt" https://thesession.org/tunes/142 but, I think, derived from an older Scottish tune called "The Perthshire Hunt" said to have been composed by Magdalina Stirling. There is a different tune with the name "The Highland Skip" which was composed by Daniel Dow.
