NOT the same as Roslyn Castle!!!

This is a chune from Angus Mackay’s The Piper’s Assistant called Roslin Castle that I thought would be fun to share. Strange melody but super fun to play.

Mackay’s book is very old, and the ornamentation in it is different from what GHBers use today. If anyone wants a GHB version — my setting — I will be happy to share.


GHB - what does that stand for?

Great highland bagpipe

Sorry, but you seem to have had another warpiper infiltrate the group.


Wrong Roslin / Roslyn Castle
