Trying to remember a film I saw when I was a boy that made use of a character with a penny whistle.

This would have been the 70s. It may have been a film made for children. It may also have been a television film. The image I recall with the greatest clarity of a (perhaps) ragtag character with a penny whistle, playing, maybe, "When Johnny Comes Marching Home." He was a minor character, and it is possible that he is mistaken for a leprechaun by the main character, a young boy, even though he is not short. I recall him having an Irish accent.
The main part of the movie may be about the Loch Ness monster (I remember finding it odd that the character was Irish if the film is a Scotland). I think the main character may have been American. And maybe it was just some sort of lake monster. It was mostly represented by bubbles coming up, maybe in a cave.
And it's not "Frog Dreaming" or "The Quest," with Henry Thomas. It sounds like it might be, but it isn't.
