Lochiel House

I think this tune (Lochiel House) was written by Angus Fitchet (1910-1998), and it’s the recommended signature tune for several Scottish country dances, including "Lochiel House" and "Ferla Mor."

More on Angus

From footstompin, http://www.footstompin.com/public/article/celtic_music_heroes/angus_fitchet

"Angus Fitchet, of Dundee, was one of Scotland’s foremost fiddlers and bandleaders. He was also a remarkably versatile musician whose experience ranged from village dances to network television shows accompanying high profile international guest artists. The sweet tone Angus brought out of the fiddle was always recognisable, no matter which band he was playing in. He did not have valuable fiddles but could coax the same tone out of whatever instrument he played.

He was a prolific and wonderful composer who wrote his first tune, "Mr Michie", in1926 - a march, which is still popular with Festival competitors. His reel, "J.B. Milne", has probably been broadcast more than any other Scottish tune. But his slow airs, such as ‘Happy Retirement’, ‘Marjorie Jane Barclay’, and ‘Lament for Will Starr’, like his many other compositions, make him comparable to the great James Scott Skinner."
