Yeah, it's a modern arrangement of Road to the Isles. Not published anywhere I'm aware of, but you can start with Road the the Isles, and go from there.

Cheers,

I was able to open it. It sounds to be like a hornpipe version of the the tune with variations on the theme and played extremely well. IMHO
