I have a cd of mixed bands, called Scottish Dance Favourites, Volume 1 published in 1995 in which the third dance is the strathspey The Bonniest Lass in all the World.
In the medley for this, the second tune played is named as the Braes of Auchtertyre, a really lovely tune, and I would very much like to use it for a new dance. I have tried searching a number of sites for any record of an actual dance with this title, but have had no success to date. As I would not wish to use a tune already associated with another dance, or infringe any copyright, do any members of Strathspey have any knowledge of a previous dance of this name, or even know of any strathspey to which The Braes of Auchtertyre is the "recommended" tune??
