ABOYNE CASTLE (2). AKA and see "Marchioness of Huntly (3) (The)." Scottish, Strathspey. A Major. Standard tuning. One part. Composed by Peter Milne, a Scottish fiddler (1824-1908), one of J. Scott Skinner’s teachers and, later, fiddling partner. Milne managed to make a living playing theater venues all over Scotland, but became addicted to opium in the drug laudanum, which he originally took as a pain-killer. Milne ended his life in reduced circumstances, busking on the ferry that crossed the Firth of Forth.
