First published in the Athole Collection, this is a tune often taught by Stan Chapman to illustrate, how fiddlers often improve older book tunes by adding both melodic and rhythmical nuances. The above setting comes from The Cape Breton Scottish Collection.

Popular within the Cape Breton fiddle tradition, this reel can be heard on the Highland Legacy DVD where it was recorded by Rodney MacDonald Glenn Graham and Kinnon Beaton. Kinnon also recorded it on a CD with his daughter (Kinnon and Andrea Beaton).
