COILANTOGLE. AKA and see "Cheap Mutton." Scottish, Strathspey. G Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB (Surenne): AABB (Williamson). Composed by Niel Gow as "Coille an Togail" or "Cheap Mutton." "Coilantogle, at the foot of Ben Ledi in Perthshire, was for long an important ford on the river Teith, and was a key point on the ways to the North. Sir Walter Scott refers to it as such in his poem 'The Lady of the Lake' (Williamson, 1976)." See the tune under the title "Cheap Mutton" for more.
