I heard this strathspey first on Julie Fowlis’ album Mar a Tha Mo Chridhe, and figured I’d do my part to write it out and add it for all you fellow Scotiaphiles out there.

Credit to the composer……

A composition of piper Fred Morrison.

This is closer to how Fred plays it on his ‘Outlands’ album. I’m not sure Fred ever plays a tune the same way twice so I wouldn’t call it definitive, for that I suppose you would need to check the version in his first tune book.
