Ok, so it seems to be an old scottish strasthpey, not a composition

Re: Stoidhle Neill Ghobha

The title means "Niel Gow’s Style" and refers to the famed fiddler’s playing style. The tune of that title was composed by Captain Simon Fraser of Knockie and published in his 1874 collection "Airs and Melodies.." alongside another of his tributes to Gow, "Caledonia’s Wail for Niel Gow" (https://thesession.org/tunes/12229).

However, the tune posted above isn’t "Niel Gow’s Style".

I posted a second setting which, I believe, is closer to what is played on "wooden flute and fiddle". I transposed it to Ador (instead of Gdor on the recording) so that is can easily be played on a D flute. But I suppose Calum Stewart actually plays it on C flute to make it sounds in Gdor.
