Thank you for your list Roderick.
We are in Dorset so it is interesting to find out what is current in Scotland.
I haven't come across the Gaelic Waltz - I can find music, but not the instructions for the dance. How is it done?
And is Posties Jig the one I have danced at RSCDS Scottish Dances? or a simpler version?

Thanks - Kate
