MRS. STEWART--INVERUGIE. Scottish, Strathspey. D Mixolydian/Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB (Marshall): AABB' (Athole). Composed by William Marshall (1748-1833). Inverugie is in Buchan, Aberdeenshire, and features an old ruined castle close to Peterhead on the River Ugie. Moyra Cowie (The Life and Times of William Marshall, 1999) suggests that Mrs. Stewart may have been Helen Stronach, a minister’s daughter, who married William Stewart of Inverugie.
