- John Drewry wrote this dance ...
John Drewry wrote this dance in September 1999 for Margaret Hutcheon of Mosstowie and Margaret Kendall of Pontefract.
Furthermore he added the following notes in Greenburn Book 3:
- At the junction on the. A96 Aberdeen-Inverness road, where the road to Mosstowie branches off, there is an old toll house which is painted in such a way that the windows appear to have eyebrows!
- The house in Monymusk, where Margaret Kendali spends some time each summer is also an old toll house.
Please also note: The Pilling diagram in the 8th edition is in error, see the supplement to the 8th edition for the correct one.
