This is a very catchy if somewhat unusual Catriona MacDonald tune which she has recorded both on her own album and along with Blazing Fiddles. The last bar(9) should really just be played at the end of the tune. Normally, you would go directly from the 8th bar of the second part back to the beginning of the tune.
There is also a meter change in the first part.
