DUNBLANE. Scottish, Strathspey. B Flat Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Dunblane, Stirling, takes its name from the Celtic root-word dun, signifying a fortified place, along with a saint's name, Blaan, who helped to convert the Picts. A bishopric was established there by David I around 1150. Margaret Drummond, the unfortunate mistress (or, as some claim, the secret wife) of James IV, is buried in the cathedral; she and her sister were poisoned in 1502 because of her relationship with the king.
