INVERESK HOUSE. Scottish, March (2/4 time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB'CCDD'. The melody was first published in David Glen's Collection of Highland Bagpipe Music, part 1. Inveresk House, east of the city of Edinburgh, has a long and rich history [1] dating to Roman times. Oliver Cromwell made Inveresk House his headquarters for about two months while his troops were camped in nearby Musselburgh, prior to his victory at Dunbar over the larger Scottish forces. The house is presently a bed-and-breakfast.
