Dance Information

The ancient village of Tulloch lies near the pass of Ballater leading into the Braes of Mar. It is thought that in the 17th century the villagers of Tulloch devised the dance together when they found their church one Sunday had no minister as he had stayed away that day thinking that the weather was too bad for any parishioners to venture out.
