Default Looking for information on a tune The Gathering of the Clans

Hi everyone, back to the well of information that is Dunsire,
Co-vid19 gives one plenty of time for more research and writing so here goes
I was researching early pipers in Prince Edward Island and came across a mid 19th century reference to a bagpipe tune called The Gathering of the Clans. I think it may be an example fo Cel mr, but I haven't been able to find it any of the piob. soc. books. The closest being the Gathering of Clan Chattan. Similarly ceol sean lists a tune by that name but it is is a relatively modern composition by John Grant in his "Pipes of War"
Perhaps the tune is known by another name today or the title simply came from the imaginative local news reporter c. 1865. Perhaps is was the work of Sir Walter Scott
Has anyone in the group ever come across this tune title or tune?
Thanks,
Barry

Gathering of the Clans or The True Gathering of the Clans is the alternate name for the piobaireachd Cogath Na Sith, War or Peace.

Here's a link to a PDF of it in Gesto's collection.

Oh Perfect Adam, I thought I remembered seeing it somewhere, but I couldn't find the alternative title in Glens either so I started to wonder if I had it wrong. I have never been through Gestos. question answered
