NOTES [85 words]: The current description is all of the GreigDuncan3 fragment.
Greig's correspondent, John Milne, has this fragment be the chorus of a song his grandfather sang "telling the joys to be derived from first-class farm-work, workmen, and working-gear" at "Mill of Boyndlie [sic]."
GreigDuncan3 has a map on p. xxxv, of "places mentioned in songs in volume 3" showing the song number as well as place name; Mill of Boyndie (441) is at coordinate (h6-7,v6) on that map [near Banff, roughly 41 miles NNW of Aberdeen]. - BS
