In “Mairi’s Wedding” some dancing couples prefer to pass Rsh for [9-24], against James Cosh’s emphatically clear instructions to pass LEFT shoulder. Dance 'devised' [tongue in cheek] with this (nick)name by Angus Henry, 1998.

For videos, please go to "Mairi's Wedding". In fact, most of the videos show the R shoulder variant.
