Dance Information

Kelburn lies at the foot of Kelburn Glen alongside the Kel Burn near Fairlie, North Ayrshire, Scotland. Kelburn is noted for Kelburn Country Centre and Kelburn Castle, a large house and the seat of the Earl of Glasgow. Originally built in the thirteenth century, it is one of the oldest castles in Scotland and has been continuously inhabited by the same family for longer than any other.
