Thanks for this lovely Scott Skinner tune. It’s actually in D major though.

You’re quite right.Temporary amnesia,it’s in D major.Sorry.

I’ve fixed the ABC

Why didn’t you just leave the abc as it was and change the key signature instead?

The link slainte gave above is now broken. A friend rescued that transcription and e-mailed it to me. As slainte says, the 3rd part of John Doherty’s medley “The Flood on the Holm” is the 1st part of Skinner’s “The Auld Wheel”.
