Dance Information

Strathnairn lies 8 miles South West of Inverness and borders the Monadhliath Mountains in Scotland. The Strath's borders reach to the north where Clava cairn and the Culloden Battlefield (Battle of Culloden) lie, following the River Nairn south through Daviot, Farr, Brin, Croachy, and finally ending near Dunmaglass.
