TULCHAN LODGE. Scottish, Strathspey (whole time). A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AA'B. Composed by fiddler-composer and dancing master J. Scott Skinner (1843-1927), who dedicated the tune to Lady Chetwode of Oakley, Staffordshire. Tulcan Lodge, a classic Victorian country lodge built in 1870 near Advie in Speyside, was the Scottish home where Skinner, early in his career as a dancing master, taught the family of Lady Chetwode of Oakley. It was renowned as one of the best sporting estates in Britain. Skinner also dedicated his "Autumn Leaves Waltz" to her.
