FALL OF FYERS [2], THE. Scottish, Strathspey (whole time). C Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. The composition is attributed to G. Grant in John and Andrew Gow's A Collection of Slow Airs, Strathspeys and Reels (London, c. 1795). Andrew (1760-1803) and younger brother John (1764-1826) established a publishing business in London in 1788 and were the English distributors for the Gow family musical publications. Poet Robert Burns (1759-1796) wrote a poem at the Fall of Fyers, Loch Ness, called by some the 'most beautiful cascade in Scotland' (see note for "Fall of Fyers (1).")
