BUNGALOW, THE. AKA "The Bungalo." Scottish, Reel. A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). One part. One of the tunes composed and included by J. Scott Skinner in his 1921 concert tour set romantically named "Spey's Fury's." The music was published in collections and on occasional sheets (a c. 1923 music sheet contains this tune as the 2nd to "The Iron Man"). The 'bungalow' refers to the cottage in Forgue which Skinner's friend, the 'Laird o' Drumblair', gave to the musician rent-free for several years.
