Despite this, in many places it is far easier to convince beginners to
return to Scottish than contra dancing, because beginners are more
likely to enjoy themselves and see people having fun around them. Ahem.
I think the problem here is really that Mairi's Wedding and
Montgomeries' Rant are danced so frequently that people forget
they are actually complicated. I doubt that would have happened, say,
with Black Mountain Reel.
