Written for Stewart Adam in ...

Written for Stewart Adam in recognition of his award of the RSCDS Scroll of Honour at the AGM in Perth in November 2015 and first danced at the Edinburgh Branch Christmas Party in December.

The dance was originally submitted to the RSCDS with Wing Commander Donald Mackenzie's Reel as the suggested tune for the reel part. Since this tune was deemed too difficult and it wasn't possible to obtain copyright clearance for reprinting it in the book, Iain MacPhail (a good friend of Stewart Adam's) was asked to compose a reel tune for the dance. This tune – Stewart Adam – Bon Viveur – is the one that is now in the RSCDS book.
