Bernard's Well
reel (traditional)

Neil Roy
reel (traditional)
The prolific Scottish composer J. Scott Skinner (1843-1927) wrote these famous variations on Tullochgorum. The two-part traditional strathspey was first published c. 1751-61 by Robert Bremner. St. Bernard's Well is in Edinburgh. Its sulphurous water was considered to have healing properties. The reel named after it comes from Neil Stewart's collection (1761-62), where it also appears as Shamboe Breeches. Neil Roy seems to be derived from The Bonny Lass of Luss in Bremner's collection. The Neil Roy setting did not appear in print until the late nineteenth century.
