Far O’er the Struay

I believe this is actually a retreat march, not a waltz, but there is no option for those when submitting. Best played slow I think.

Other online sources say it was composed by John Peter MacLeod.

Where did you get it, iwilson?

Far O’er the Struay

I learnt this tune from one of the tutors at the Folkworks Summer School in Durham, Uk, last week (aug 2009).

I was going to put up some others I learnt (I Will Sail from Islay to Kintyre, Glenburnie Rant), but can only put up one a day.
