SOUND OF SLEAT. Scottish, Reel (whole time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABBC (Martin/1988): AABCCD (Martin/2002). Sleat (pronounced slate) is the name of a sea inlet on the west coast of Scotland, lying between mainland Knoydart and the Isle of Skye. Composed by Pipe Major Donald Mackinnon of Broadford (Isle of Skye), this reel has become a classic of 20th century bagpipe music. Mackinnon served in Korea with the King’s Own Scottish Borderers before emigrating to Australia in the mid-1950's.
