John Glen (1891) finds the earliest version of the tune in print in Robert Bremner's 1757 collection. However, a version of the reel can be found earlier in Edinburgh fiddler and writing master David Young's MacFarlane Manuscript (c. 1741, p. 228) as "Loch Sloy." It was later printed by the Gows under the title "Cut and Dry (1)."
