This is a Swedish tune. We play it after one of the E minor Princess Royals. It was aquired at a Hands on Music melodion workshop in Witney (Oxfordshire).
Nice tune, Thanks

The Lovely Mountains of Norbotten ~ someday…
It’s just as well I wasn’t making the original submission, I screwed up the first two bars for the version given above in E minor, here they are again in 4/4 and with the swing:

Lite ordning på stavningen — NoRRbotten.
The "real" name for this tune is Lanna-Villes schottis.
And yes, BTW, Norrbotten is spelled with two RRs.
I have this on a cassette recording "Folksmusicvagen" given to us by a Swedish friend. as far as I can tell from the very scant sleeve notes there are 6 fiddles and 1 guitar on the recording.

This tune is incorrectly linked to a tune simply called Schottische on the CD "Mouthorgan" by Will Atkinson. It is not the same tune
This tune came from the playing of fiddler Stig Vifast Björklund (1928-1988) who was born in Finland, but lived for much of his life in Överkalix, Norrbotten. He got the tune from his foster father, Lanna-Ville (Lahna-Ville), who was so called because he came from Lahnajärvi, in Norrbotten.
I’ve fixed the problem with the bad link. It should never have been called "Schottische".
