MISS BURNETT, FASQUE'S. Scottish, Strathspey (cut time). B Flat Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. Fasque, also known as Fasque House or Fasque Castle, is a mansion in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, situated near the village of Fettercairn, in the former county of Kincardineshire. Fasque was the property of the Ramsays of Balmain, at the time of Duff's publication headed by Sir Alexander Ramsay, 6th Baronet of Balmain. When he died in 1806 the estate the estate passed to his nephew, Alexander Burnett, who was made a baronet in 1806, and adopted the Ramsay surname. One supposes that Duff's "Miss Burnett" was a sister or cousin of the family.
