DARLING, THE [1] (Nighean donn ro'bheadarach). Scottish, Strathspey. F Sharp Dorian (Fraser, Kohler, Stewart-Robertson): E Minor (Howe). Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. "This is the air of one of the favourite sprightly songs of Mr. Fraser of Culduthel, so oftened named. It would have been sooner noticed, were it not for the difficulty of finding melodies suited to this uncommon key. It makes an admirable medley with No. 217 ('MacDonald, Lord of the Isles')" {Fraser}.
