Dance Information

Bannock is a biscuit or scone or variety of flat quick bread or any large, round article baked or cooked from grain.

When a round bannock is cut into wedges, the wedges are often called scones. However, in Scotland the words bannock and scone are often used interchangeably.

"Brose" is the Scots word for a "broth made using oatmeal".
