DUCHESS OF ATHOLL [3]. Scottish, Reel. A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Glen (1891) finds the tune earliest in Daniel (sometimes 'Donald') Dow's c. 1775 collection (p. 25). Kirkmicheal, Perthshire, fiddler and composer Robert Petrie included it in his Second Collection of Strathspey Reels and Country Dances, 1796. The first couple of measures are similar to Petrie's "Peep o' Day (2)/Peep a Day" in his Third Collection, AKA "Larickille" by Alexander McGlashan.
