Scots March

On 30th June, 1667 Samuel Pepys met Lord George Douglas in Rochester and mentions seeing his Regiment; he records that
Here in the streets, I did hear the Scotch march beat by the drums before the soldiers, which is very odde.

According to this article the march is of possibly quite ancient - being mentioned in the 16th century as terrifying the opposition.
