Devised 22nd February, 2005 in Wellington, whilst sitting out as part of a spare couple during the dancing of Neidpath Castle. Evidently, the dance is a four couple version of Neidpath Castle. The tower of Neidpath Castle is not square but rather the shape of a parallelogram with rounded corners.
Recommended music is "Neidpath Castle," but there is no 4 x32 recording. Acceptable alternative would be a pastoral 4x32 Strathspey such as "St John's River," or "Bonnie Lass of Bon Accord."
