SCOTCH MIST [3]. AKA and see “Haughs of Cromdale (The).” Scottish, Strathspey. E Dorian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. Scotch Mist is a Scottish Country Dance, while the tune is a version of the Gows "Lady Catherine Stewart." The first strain of both is shared with the better-known "Haughs of Cromdale (The)" tune family. As often happens, Knowles' tune has taken on the name of the dance it was associated with.
