HIGHLAND SOCIETY OF SCOTLAND [1], THE (An Comunn Rioghail Gaidhealach). Scottish, Slow Strathspey. A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. An editor’s note in Fraser says the Highland Society was "rather an association of the 1745 (the date of Bonnie Prince Charlie's defeat). "Though this air appears complimentary to the Highland Society, it was originally composed for an association in the 1745, in favour of the Pretender, which assumed the name of the Highland Association" (Fraser).
