Norman Buchan in his notes to Rothesay-O says that it is a music hall song that entered the tradition.

It was very popular in folk clubs during my University days in the mid 60's. A good song with a sing along chorus for all to join in.

Someone somewhere pointed out that the Glasgow fair was actually in June.
