DUCHESS OF ATHOLE'S REEL. Scottish, Reel (4/4 time). F Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABCC. Michael Newton, writing in his blog "The Origins of the Strathspey: A Rebuttal" [1] believes the correct Scots Gaelic title of Cumming's "Tuggin ta'chi n'ul 'n Aird" should be "Tiugainn dachaidh nill dha'n Àird."
