The Crinan Puffer

I wrote this tune a couple of years ago while visiting with my brother around the West Coast of Scotland. Well at least I think I wrote this tune. Who knows? Maybe I just remembered it! Crinan is a beautiful spot, the end of the Caledonian Canal, and the Puffers were a set of steam powered boats that took supplies to the Western Isles. Being overhauled at Crinan while we were there was VIC32, one of the last of the puffers still running. This tune came to me as we walked along the canal in the spring sunshine.
