A slightly harder version of the Flying Scotsman - called by Alistair Anderson who said it came from Australia and the fourth couple stands still throughout each turn of the dance.
I don't see that it matters whether the women start (as in this version) or the men start (as in the Flying Scotsman).
: Weaving, 1s galop down and back, top 3 couples galop down.
