Default Lady Carmichael of Castle Craig Strathspey

I have searched everywhere for the notation to this tune, i have it on cd, but not in any of my music books, or in my bagpipe music writer library.
Can anyone tell me which book i might find it in, or where it would be available as a .bww file?
Failing that a .pdf would do! Been driving me nuts for months now.....

This is listed in Dr Pekaar's encyclopaedia of tunes as a 2 parted Strathspey in 4/4 time by John Gow and is on page 10 of the 9th part of David Glen’s collection.

There is also a listing for "Lady Carmichaels Strathspey” as a 2 part Strathspey in 4/4 time with a composer not listed as being on page 14 of Duncan Johnstone book 1

Duncan used to play a lot of Traditional stuff as well as writing his own parts to tunes in addition to his own material, so perhaps if you get someone like Roger Huth who has a lot of these old and sought after books; you might find out if they are one and the same tune. I have Duncan Johnston’s book but not David Glens.

I have now searched my collection of books and I have Duncan's First Book and have now got the tune.

The daft thing is that it is a tune that I have heard since i was a tot but Never played. One look at the music and its already there so Thanks for the extra tune. We ex brats have to stick together..........

I liked the four pages from the anamnese site but couldn't find the main site. What is the homepage address?

There seem to be two tunes composed by John Gow:
LADY CARMICHAEL (OF CASTLE CRAIG)
and LADY CARMICHAEL OF CASTLE CRAIG’S FAVORITE.

http://www.ibiblio.org/fiddlers/LADYA_LADYF.htm

The 2nd tune doesn't fit on pipes.

Thank you for all the information, and thanks for the interest, i've been humming the tune for years, but never played it, until now, hopefully i'll slot it into a Burn's Supper or two next week!
