Sidlaw Hills

This is a strathspey, though also played as a Highland Schottische, written by a Jim Watson of Blairgowrie. Its commonly played in eastern Scotland. The Sidlaws in question are a range of hills stretching from east of Perth to south-east of Forfar, its a very beautiful part of the world.

This is one of the first tunes I learned on the fiddle and one of my absolute favourites.

Re: Sidlaw Hills

This is tune is quite popular in the Borders and Northumberland because of Tom Hughes’ playing.

My God, that’s a beautiful strathspey! I’m listening to the Andy May recording.
