Finding tunes actually written by Jimmy Shand isn't so easy, but I have a couple of ideas to try...

Yes it is. They're in two books currently in print and published by his son Jimmy Shand Jr.
http://www.jimmyshand.com/index.php/books. All the best ones are in the first book. It's also the book from which some copies have been made and published in this thread, in breach of copyright, I believe. Lunan Bay, for which ABC has been published here, is the first tune in the first book.

Edit: Of course, permission to publish may have been obtained from Jimmy Shand Jr, in which case I would stand corrected.

Well, that'll be all right then. Is Jimmy Jr also the copyright holder for the Shand/MacLeish arrangements published by Mozart Allan? (Barren Rocks of Aden; Loch Lomond). Note that the score copy of Loch Lomond is missing a couple of lines; they're on p14 of the book

This was really just a first take, but as I finished it mere seconds before the workmen arrived to finish installing the new front door, I figured that Fate was nudging me to post it as-is.  Plus the dog was  being so cooperative.

So here's "The Barren Rocks of Aden," or perhaps in this case "The Comfy Sofa of Whippet Hall":

Folk Blues, that's a lovely little tune too!
Have you any abc's for it or just taken the dots in the book?

Thanks to Thrupenny Bit for drawing my attention to the fact that Shand recorded Braidwood's Looking for a Partner, which I've long known from the New Victory Band Album "One More Dance and Then".
I've had to revise my transcription of this, having this morning found a copy of Shand's recording, So I'm struggling a bit with a slightly different (but hopefully more faithful to the original) version of a familiar tune.
