The Arran Boat Song / The Haughs of Cromdale / Glenburnie Rant
The tunes can be played individually or strung together, as they appear here, into a set of air_strathspey_reel. The air should be played so as to depict the rocking of a small boat. The reel is played slowly at first, gradually moving up to reel tempo.
