may 2005. Note: Bars 25-32 are deliberately not broken down. 4+4 doesn't work well - the lead up is too slow and the arches too frantic. I suspect 2+6 may be the opposite and 3+5 be about right, but play around and see what works for you in your set - and don't worry if it varies!
Notes from Ian: When my son Stuart was first born, his sister Lorna called him "Oot". This then progressed to "'Ua't" and then "S'ua't". This dance was written just before Stuart's first birthday, and is dedicated to him.
