Dance Information

Ann Dix devised this dance for the committee members of the Argyll Scottish Dancing Group and their friends who holidayed together on Arran in May 2003. The Argyll's committee meeting was held on this holiday, far from the members' usual territory of the English home counties.

The deviser's recommended tune was The Sally Gardens.
