Learned from the playing of Alex Francis MacKay. Makes a swinging Highland.

Good reel which can also be found in Kerr’s Merry Melodies. I used to play it with a folk group in the 1990s, and if I remember correctly the Battlefield Band recorded it, but in the key of D minor, and it worked rather well.

I believe I have correctly notated the version as played by Battlefield Band on their album Home Is Where The Van Is.
