Nice one! There’s another tune with this name (https://thesession.org/tunes/5920) but this is not a duplicate; they’re totally different tunes.
The Skye version is on John Chambers’ site here: http://trillian.mit.edu/~jc/music/book/SCD/Skye_RP/T/Ill_Gang_nae_mair_to_yon_toun_.abc
“There’s another tune with this name (https://thesession.org/tunes/5920)”
It shouldn’t have the same name; the tune called “We’ll Aye Gang Back to Yon Toon” was composed by James Scott Skinner.
The tune above is old, and found under many names, including “Eight Men of Moidart”, “I’ll Gang Nae Mair To Yon Town”, “I’ll Aye Ca’ In By Yon Town” and, in Ireland, “The Pope’s Toe” (https://thesession.org/tunes/4355).
