Dance Information

This strathspey, A Trip To Tobermory (pronounced "tow-bur-mower-ay"), was one of the first dances devised by John Drewry (1963) appearing in Younger Hall programmes at the RSCDS Summer School shortly after.

Tobermory is the capital of, and the only burgh on, the Isle of Mull in the Scottish Inner Hebrides.

It is located in the northeastern part of the island, near the northern entrance of the Sound of Mull.
