I was looking for this tune in books and online a few months ago and tried everywhere, including here. I finally gave up and just transcribed it off a fiddle CD. I thought I’d post it here since it was so hard to find.
It’s a Donald MacLeod tune.
This tune appears on Capercaillie’s album ‘Delirium’.
You sure this is a McLeod tune, borderpiper? As David says, it’s on "Delirium", and it’s also been recorded by Gordon Duncan. Both have the composer as one N.McDonald.
I could most definitely be wrong. I know it’s on delirium but I’ve lost the insert for it. It was a mate that said it was a donald macleod tune. I’ll stand corrected…
My reference to it being hard to find was refering to the dots.
For the jig that goes after this on Delirium go here: https://thesession.org/tunes/6883.
This tune was composed by Norman MacDonald.
This jig was composed by Norman Macleod after double gold medallist Kenny(Kenneth) MacDonald. You also can find this tune on Fred Morrison’s CD "Broken chanter".
Sorry - Norman MacDonald :)

Re: Kenny Macdonald’s
Kenny was a lovely guy and great piper who I had the pleasure to work with, for a few years. His beautiful pipes, mentioned above, are now in the safe hands of Craig Sked who won the silver medal with them a few years ago. Kenny’s playing, and those great pipes can be heard on the album "sound of Kintail" if you can find a copy.
