Yes, Scotland it is… Over time and publication the reel and strathspey are pretty much the same melody, as is this transcription and Dafydd’s, with some differences. That’s where the "sort of" comes in… It’s good you had the courtesy to give credit…

“George Booker” / “Keeper Hill” / “The Marquis Of Huntley’s Farewell” ~ R: reel

Key signature: A Major
