Six comments

A simple but nice traditional Scottish reel I picked up from Margaret Stewart and Allan MacDonalds album "Fhuair mi Pog".
Allan plays it on Scottish smallpipes.

Also known as Bealach a’ Chara or The Pass of Cara.

Second name from Alasdair White

He also calls it the Lads of…Mull…?? to mine own ears.

Lads of Mull

You heard right, in fact the tune has been posted under that title elsewhere on this site. Nice Youtube of Fin Moore playing it on pipes if you care to Google it.
