Checked out this tune on YouTube. Lovely! Thanks for pointing it out. Easy enough to figure out the dots. Am adding it to my repertoire.

*BUMP*
I just heard this on the R.G. Hardie website, played by Callum Beaumont. I love it. It would be a great air to use to check tuning. Covers everything but F and low G. Anyone know where to get a copy of the music, by chance?
Cheers!

One would need to be able to transpose the dowloaded file either up to D or even up an octave to A Not bad for $1.99 for a legal, non-pirated copy.

The sheet music download seems to be a page out of Julia Gordon's book, Songs and Airs of Scotland Book 2. This book does contain the tune, but it's an arrangement for accordion, like the rest of the book.

It's listed as a "traditional bagpipe tune" in some places and a "traditional song" in others, but I'm always suspicious of anything "traditional" from the Western Isles that has the words or the title in English rather than Ghaidlig, so I looked it up in the PRS database and it was written by an E McNally who registered it as a new composition on the 10th May 1999, so the "traditional" listing in Julia's book is very wrong. PRS also state it's never been published anywhere, so they are unaware of Julia's book.

It's a good tune for ear training, going by this youtube link, it's 3/4 time, first bar Ac e e, second bar af c c, third bar cd e ef, and that should be enough to get you started.



It also reminds me of Kilworth Hills.
