Very popular Scottish pipe jig that’s been requested here a couple of times. Written by George Johnstone.

Thanks for filling my request! 🙂

You’re welcome. Great tune!

Re: Donella Beaton

I read that George Johnstone, the composer of this tune, was Pipe Major of the 1st Battalion Queen’s Own Cameron Highlanders after WW2. Does someone know if this is correct?
Thanks
