Does anyone know who devised the jig Miss Johnstone of Dumfries, the only dance I know outside strathspeys which has the Knot figure in it.

Bob Campbell devised Miss Johnstone of Dumfries and it appears in his
Farewell, My Fancy book.

A quick scan of Dance Data shows 11 reels and 7 jigs with the Knot. (Thanks,
Alan)
