FIRESIDE REEL [1]. Scottish, Reel (cut time). C Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The melody appears in both the Drummond Castle Manuscript, Part 2 (1734, No. 11), in the possession of the Earl of Ancaster at Drummond Castle, inscribed "A Collection of the best Highland Reels written by David Young, W.M. & Accomptant", and the Young-Bodleian Manuscript (in the Bodleian Library, Oxford), inscribed " A Collection of the Newest Country Dances Performed in Scotland written at Edinburgh by D.A. Young, W.M. 1740."

The minor-mode march/polka called the "Fireside Reel (2)" is not musically related to Young's tune, but rather is derived from a song air from the Hebrides, adapted for the Scottish Country Dance called Fireside Reel.
