The original tune was composed by John Gordon who was piper to Col. Stewart MacDougall, the laird of Lunga Estate. The dance is dedicated to Nan Gordon, on her 100 th  birthday. Nan Gordon is John Gordon’s daughter-in- law and Margaret Senior’s aunt. Peter Scatterty made a recording for Robert initially and in 2013 the dance was included in The Sunday Class Dance Book 1 with Marian Anderson & her Band recording the accompanying CD.
