Have been trying to find the music for Aros Park for a friend. It's a 4-part 2/4 pipe march we play in the Sandy Bell's moothie group (along with John Macdonald's March).
Searching the internet reveals (along with a lot of guides and trip reports to the actual park) that it's in a collection of Addie Harper tunes, which I may buy as a last resort, but if anyone already has the dots that would be greatly appreciated.
It's a great tune tune with a very pleasing twist in the third part.

Hi Alastair,

I've picked up one or two copies of this tune over the years. Some of them may be slightly different from each other. I'm not sure.

Anyway, this is the first one I've found today. I've scanned it and uploaded a pdf. I hope it's "recht".   Wink
If not, let me know and I'll try something else.

All the best
Thanks for this, JAJ.  One of our fiddlers sometimes plays this one at our weekly sessions and I was also looking for the notes.
No bother.
I think I have it in a book as well as other copies.   Hopefully, this version is OK.

Many thanks for this.
Does seem a bit different from the version we play in Sandy Bells.
I'll need to study it in more detail.
I'll maybe bite the bullet and buy the Addie Harper book to get it from the horse's mouth as it were.
"get it from the horse's mouth as it were"

It's actually a Pibroch Mackenzie tune not Addie Harper(although it's in his collection) but you may know this already.

I've found another version which may be better. We played this at an Inverness Fiddlers rally and it's possibly more accurate.
I'll post it later today or tomorrow. Have to dash right now.
