Tune of the Day: Balcomie House

Traditional Scottish jig

There is a Balcomie Castle in Scotland, that was begun in the 16th century and has had various owners over the years. Perhaps the most interesting feature of this castle is that it is said to be haunted by the ghost of either a young man who was either starved to death within its walls or a boy who was hanged. The offence was the same in either case: because he would not stop whistling! Presumably it was not this tune that led to his demise, although this could perhaps be verified for it is said one can clearly hear whistling when it is seen.
