CRAIGLUG BRIG. Scottish, Slow Strathspey. A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. Composed by Peter Milne (1824-1908), the "Tarland Minstrel". The bridge at Craiglug, a village in Aberdeenshire, dates from 1829. It is properly called the Wellington Suspension Bridge and spans the River Dee. The bridge still stands in modern times, although is in a state of disrepair and cannot be crossed. See also Milne's companion piece, "Craiglug Reel".
