I was at the same event - my Scottish Country Dance Team were entertaining.
We also stayed for the Ceilidh and our dancers were dancing to this same
dance. I don't remember the instructions but I think it was one used
regularly by the Ceilidh Band who were 'Ceilidh Minogue'. I think you may
be able to get them through the 'net'. Hope this helps.
