Profile



Highland and National dancers for all types of events, both business and social. One of the dancers is also a choreographer who composes dances based on traditional Highland steps, and so we can provide a wider variety of dances than simply the standard competition Highland dances if desired.

Venues have included Edinburgh Castle, Stirling Castle, Mugdock Castle, as well as mini Highland Games at Crieff, Aberfoyle, and Cheshire.

Is asked quite frequently to pipe at weddings, and these venues have included Stirling Castle, Linlithgow Palace, Doune Castle, Culcreuch Castle, and Glengorm Castle Isle of Mull.

Up to 12 dancers of high quality in the 20-30 age group are available, with high quality show which is popular for business and corporate functions as a 20-30 minute cabaret show of Highland and National dancing ( including costume changes) e.g. after dinner or between speeches and the start of general dancing, etc., and at Burns-theme dinners for visitors and colleagues from abroad.

Playlists etc:

Was retained In May 2003 as resident piper at Kinlochmoidart House for 2 days to welcome guests arriving, pipe guests in to dinner, and pipe reveille in the mornings, and an actress ghost re-enacted part of the history of the castle during dinner.

Has just finished a contract which ran for 8 years due to public demand at the Stirling Highland hotel to supply dancers once a week for 6 months of the year and play for them, the format there being that guests are piped in to dinner, the haggis is piped in and out, and we then do 3 slots of Highland, National, and Irish dancing respectively, complete with costume changes, one slot after each course of the meal, with an introduction of the dancers and a brief explanation of the themes behind the dances. This has proved very popular, as the dancing provides a talking point and stimulates conversation, as well as contributing to a more leisurely meal.

Was retained in 2005 by an airline to fly 12 dancers to London where we put on a piping and dancing show in the Grosvenor House Hotel for 900 guests. Other venues for similar but smaller types of shows have included Glenturret Distillery Crieff, the Carlton Highland hotel in Edinburgh, the Ramada Jarvis hotels in Gourock and Edinburgh, the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh, and the Golden Lion hotel in Stirling.

In January 2005 put on a similar style of show at the Hilton Metropole hotel, Birmingham, to 750 guests and in June 2006 a larger group did a show to 8,000 participants in the first-ever charity Moonwalk in Scotland.

Has also done shows in Odoorn, Holland, and Stavanger and Egersund, Norway.
