My favorite is Alison's Round Reel (Tweeddale Coll, Vol 2, Alex Gray)
It's not the easiest, having inverting double triangles, ( as in The
Nurseryman) and reels of 3, but done with a walking step to the jaunty
music of The Fisherman's Reel on Highlander 6 it's a good warmup after an
The only round the room strathspey I've done is The Mary Stewart
Strathspey, I think? I've used Pat Kent's The Mayflower as a strathspey,
worked nicely with a class of beginners.
