Video Notes
Although elegantly performed, there are some deviations from the official instructions.
At the end of bar 12, 2L and 4L are already facing in the correct direction and so they should not pull left shoulder back; similarly for 1L and 3L at bar 28.
In the strathspey, 2s of the full set dance as 1s, 3s as 2s, 4s as 3s and 1s as 4s; this means that it is the side couples of the full set who dance bars 1-8 and so on.
Bars 70-72 of the strathspey is not a chase; all dance hands round to the right.
