Brig O’ Balater

From the playing of Kinnon Beaton. This one appears in the Athole and I think the Skye Collection as well.

On fiddle, the d<e and c<e notes beginning in bars 2 and 4 respectively, should be played on an up bow with the "e" note played with the fourth finger. This sets you up to make the jump down to the lower octave a lot easier.
