Dance Information

The Firth Of Beauly (pronounced "beoollie" with the emphasis on the first syllable, from French "beau lieu", meaning "beautiful place") is a firth ("firth" is Scots for "estuary") in northern Scotland, effectively a continuation of the Moray Firth westward, and is bounded at one end by Beauly and at the other by Inverness.
