A traditional strathspey which was collected by James Stewart Robertson for the Athole Collection. (1884). In that book both turns are played in the upper octave. On his new CD Dougie MacDonald plays the 1st turn in the lower octave as above (note: he adds some tricky bowing in bar 2 which I haven't attempted to notate). Dougie heard the tune from childhood 'neighbours' Alex Francis MacKay and Dan Hughie MacEachern.
