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.
The Prince Of Wales (reel)
This tune was composed by Donald MacPhedran.
Here’s a clip of Alasdair White playing this tune. It’s the second tune he plays…….

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.
