You can find both Melodies to The Braes o Balquhither in R A Smith's Scotish(sic) Minstrel. The former in Vol 1 1821 and the latter indexed as the Three Carles o Buchannan, Vol lV 2nd edition. They are not the same. Smith set the Braes to his first tune but later printed it to Tannahill's original choice "The three Carls, which had already been printed in 1810 as a "New Scotch Song The Braes O' Balquhither.
(Publisher J. McFadyen, music seller No 30, Wilson Street Glasgow, engraved by Walker and Hutton who were in business between 1810 and 1814 only).
