BERRYDEN COTTAGE. Scottish, Strathspey. A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). One part. Composed by Peter Milne (1824-1908), a self-taught fiddler born in Kincardine O'Neil. Milne earned his living playing in theatres about Scotland and was one on J. Scott Skinner's teachers, but later became an opium addict and was reduced to playing on the ferry-boats crossing the Firth of Forth (in the company of blind musician Willie Grant). Hunter (1988) says: "He was a talented composer and a natural fiddler who, in his own words 'was that fond o' my fiddle, I could sit inside it and look oot.'"
