Notes on Gaelic Title

Caismeachd do Dhuntreòin Caismeachd da Dhuntroi[n] / Duntron’s Warning K1. A warning to Duntroon. The form with preposition do, unusual in tune names, makes clear that the warning is being issued to and not by Duntroon (the person). Even so it is possible that Angus MacKay has modified an original nominative + genitive name Caismeachd Dhuntreòin as implied by his English version.
