APPIN HOUSE [2]. Scottish, Reel (cut time). A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABBCCD. Although in four parts like "Appin House (1)" and having some rhythmic and sparse melodic similarities, it does appear to be a different tune. The melody, which first appears in McGlashan's Collection, was commonly played in scordatura tuning on the violin in the 19th century.
