GLEN LYON/GLENLYON . AKA - "Glenlyon's Reel," "Glen Lyon's Reel." AKA and see "Eccles's Rant," "Mr. Campbell's Reel," "Ochal Reel." Scottish, Reel (cut time). D Mixolydian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB (Surenne): AAB (Cranford/Holland, Davie, Gow, McGlashan, Stewart-Robertson). John Glen (1891) finds the earliest printing of the tune under the "Glenlyon" title in Neil Stewart's 1761 collection (p. 18). However, the melody is much older and can be found as "Eccles's Rant" and "Ochal Reel" in David Young's manuscript collections, and, still earlier, as "Mr. Campbell's Reel" in the George Skene Manuscript (c. 1715-17).
