I learnt this tune from Scotish fiddler Greg Scott in Geelong, Australia. We used it for the dance Virginia Reel with Mucking of Geordie’s Byre and Loch Lomond.

The Deveron Reel

Actually called "The Deveron Reel" after a river in Aberdeenshire, and composed by Neil Grant, who worked on The White Heather Club and other BBC shows in the late 1950s/early 60s.
