Default Sheet music for Flower of Yarrow?

Hi, can anybody tell me where I can find the music for this tune?
Heard it on the radio the other day and it's lovely.
thanks James.

Not certain where you will find GHB music for it but Matt Seattle published a border pipe version in The Border Bagpipe Book, under the fuller title "Mary Scott, The Flower of Yarrow". He also has it for NSP in Bewick's Tunes.

The tune has relatives in the Northumbrian tune "Sir John Fenwick's the flo'er amang them all", and, according to Matt's notes in strathspey time as "The Smiths a Gallant Fireman".

Mary Scott( without the sobriquet, but the same tune anyway) is also in the LBPS Sessions Tunes book, but without gracings, as is customary with smallpipe and borderpipe settings.

There's a version in the old "Cauld Wind" tutor that uses a pinched high B if I recall correctly ( mine's out on loan right now). or it may be that I'm remebring the high B from Gordon Mooney's playing on "Over The Border"

Thank you both for the reply, I did not realise that it was a BP tune as I only heard the tail end of it on the radio. But will look for a GHB version.
James.
