Dance Information

Scotia (pronounced "skoh-sha") was originally a Roman name for Ireland, inhabited by the people they called Scoti or Scotii, the early Gaels.

Use of the name shifted in the Middle Ages to designate the part of the island of Great Britain lying north of the Firth of Forth, the Kingdom of Alba. By the later Middle Ages it had become the fixed Latin term for what in English is called Scotland.

Dusk At South Bay On The Barmore Island Shore, Scotland

This boulder strewn shore is viewed at about ten pm in the evening; these are remarkably the natural unmodified colours of this time of evening at such a northern latitude in Scotland.
