I learned the tune from an Alistair Frasier cd (Scottish fiddle player). I changed the octave of a few notes and the entire second half to fit the whistle. I couldn't stand hitting a 3rd octave d (if it were a d whistle), and substituting a different note didn't sound good to me either. I'll post a transcription here. Hopefully tonight.
Tony

Here are the notes as promised:

BEGB ebge (3def) dB AFDF
EGB(AG) FAdB AFDF GE EG:|

GBdB cBAG FGAB AFDA
GBd(cB) cBAG FDAF EFEF
GBdB cBAG FGAB AFDA
BAGF EFGE dBAF GE E2

Capital letters are lower octave, lower case: upper octave.
(3def) is a triplet
(cB) has the value of one beat.
F is sharped, c is natural.
Remember to really sustain the first note of each group of four. Or something like that.
Tony
