Dance InformationThis dance, Foursome Reel And Half Reel Of Tulloch, is a combination of the Strathspey part of the Foursome Reel, with bars 1-16 repeated for bars 33-48, followed by 88 bars of a modified version of the Reel of Tulloch. Both the originals and the combination require Highland steps and so are really not suitable for the ordinary Scottish Country Dancer.
