MRS. A. MACPHERSON OF INVERAN. Scottish, Pipe Reel. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABCCDEEF. Composed by Pipe Major G.S. McLennan [1] (1883-1927), a bagpiper revered in Highland circles. Mrs. MacPherson was Alice Ross, who married Angus MacPherson (son of Malcolm "Calum Piobaire" MacPherson). The couple became innkeepers and ran a hotel in Invershin. Piper McLennan stayed at the hotel during a long recuperation from an illness, and the MacPhersons were happy to put him up. They wanted not a penny in recompense, and in gratitude McLennan wrote two tunes for them; a march for Angus, and the reel for Alice.
