Here's a traditional Scottish Country Dance tune.... It is commonly played in F, so I've left it like that, but if anyone wants it transposed to their preferred key, let me know.

Additionally, here's a harp and viola arrangement, found on the MuseScore site to play along to -  

 

**EDIT** - Oh, of course - here's the .mscz file for those of you who use MuseScore, and the .musicxml file for import to other music editors - [ Note - the file type .musicxml cannot be uploaded to the forum - if you want to use it, rename the .txt file to .xml ( or .musicxml ) as required....

Yup - it is a nice little tune.

And a further edit to the original post - in my hurry, I omitted to acknowledge the arranger - I always give credit where credit's due - the harp and viola arrangement was done by Mike Magatagan, and can be found here -

Neat!

Ive not heard this one before.  I like it. Sounds like I hear a little of Banks of the Ohio.  Actually I probably hear this tune in Banks of the Ohio.  

Thanks for posting!
