It is published by Kerr's Music in Glasgow so maybe a quick ring to them will produce your answer. Cheers, Jim McLean

According to Wikipedia - The Bluebells of Scotland is the usual modern name for a Scottish folk song (Roud # 13849). It was written by Dora Jordan, an English actress and writer. First published in 1801.

All I know is it is a tune used for a Morris Stick Dance in the village of Adderbury, Oxfordshire and the tune is also played on the Adderbury (St, Marys) church Carillon every 3 hours on of the days in the week - don't have the day at hand..........

"Ring the Bluebells of Scotland" seems to be an entirely different song (which Jim has been unlucky enough to hear, I haven't). There is a version by Kenneth McKellar, who was willing to sing anything if you paid him (great voice though).
