This dance was published by the RSCDS in their Diamond Jubilee Book (1983). Mrs Ysobel Stewart of Fasnacloich (in Appin) was a founding member of the (R)SCDS and when Marie Jamieson of London went to her memorial service, she suggested to John Drewry that “Autumn in Appin” would be a good title for a dance. It was several years later, in 1982, that her suggestion resulted in this dance.
