Loch Rannoch from Bunrannoch, by John Fleming

MISS STEWART BUN RANNOCH. AKA - "Mrs. Stewart Bun Rannoch." AKA and see “Ciorsdan Mhór.” Scottish, Reel. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB'. Bun Rannoch near Loch-Rannoch, Perthshire, was the residence of Allan Stewart, Esq., at the time McKercher published his collection in 1824. Fiddler-composer Duncan McKercher originally published the reel as "Mrs. Stewart, Bun Rannoch," presumably Allan's wife, but sometime in mid-century the title devolved to "Miss" from "Mrs.". See also the Scottish tune relatives "Ciorsdan Mhór", "Big Kirsty" and "A' the Way to Galloway," and the Irish family of tunes including “All the Way to Galway (1),” “Road to Lisdoonvarna (2) (The)."
