(MAXICRIB, Scottish country dancing instructions compiled by Reuben Freemantle)
9-22 Ls always cross under arches made by Mn; couples going down go under arches made by those going up.
Corners always give right shoulder when exchanging places and do not take hands.
9-24 Starting from first corners' positions, chase anticlockwise around the set, at each corner turning the approaching dancer by the left; from second corners' positions, chase clockwise around the set, at each corner turning the approaching dancer by the right.
11-24 Use elbow grip when turning corners.
29-32 A birl (left hands joined above right hand elbow grip) is more fun.
