This is a nice tune - never met it before, but to me it cries out for C#s…

Prince Charlie

Ashley MacIsaac recorded this tune after Bog an Lochan and Flora MacDonald. Good to know I can play it on whistle. Thanks.

You’re right: all the Cs are sharp in the Fraser collection (1874 edition).

Csharp? YES!

Definately I hear it cry for this also. I´ve tried to change it but couldn´t. Let´s leave it be and remember to play c#
