Extra info
This dance is a 16S ...

This dance is a 16S/16J medley; the tune "Craighall", universally used for this dance, is a jig.

In some older publications the quicktime part was wrongly said to be a Reel. This error was corrected in an earlier revision of Book 22, but has appeared again in the revised pocket Books 19-24. Just disregard these errors.
