BRAES OF KILLIEKRANKIE. Scottish. "First printed in Scotch Presbyterian Eloquence, 1692, adapted for religious use. It is still well known in Scotland, both as a song and a fiddle tune. ... Seems to have been written soon after the battle (it commemorates) {the Battle of Killiekrankie, 27 July, 1689} [Williamson]."

"My Mistres Blush is Bonie" from the Skene Manuscript (c. 1615) for the mandura is thought to be an ancestral tune.
