BONNIE GLENFARG. Scottish, Slow Air. A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. Composed by J. Scott Skinner (1846–1927). Skinner wrote out the piece for Rose Wood of Banff's pupil, Kiloh, as can be seen in a copy of the manuscript at the University of Aberdeen's Skinner site [1]. The composer noted at the bottom of the page: 'Will make a pretty Skirt Dance. Slow, play languidly.' Glenfarg is a small village in the Ochil Hills in the county of Perth and Kinross and was once a popular holiday destination.
