Dance Information

Tomintoul (meaning Hillock of the Barn) is a village in the Moray council area of Scotland.

The village was laid out on a grid pattern by the 4th Duke of Gordon in 1775. It followed the construction, twenty years previously, of a military road by William Caulfeild - now the A939.
