"adapted by RSCDS" version:
12 1st and 2nd couples dance in and take Tulloch hold by linking left arms, right hands behind their backs, and their partner's right hand in their left.
13-16 1st and 2nd couples turn...
As the 1st and 2nd couples give left hands to each other they slip immediately into a left-handed Tulloch Hold, turning twice.

How is the turn described in the RSCDS version of the dance (I don't have a copy yet)? If the text of the dance specifically says its a modified tulloch turn done as for two ladies or something like that, the way it's being done in the videos is fine. But if the RSCDS version just says "turn as in Reel of Tulloch" or "tulloch turn" (terminology as per page 20), then the men's hands should be in the air as per the bottom figure on page 21.
If the devisors want the turn done as for two ladies, that's their prerogative, but it should be so specified in the dance description of the RSCDS version as a deviation from the standard. If not, it's an editorial mistake by the Society in the published leaflet. There certainly are other specified deviations from the standard in the repertoire.
