    RE: Angus Macleod- to promenade or not to promenade????????

    Out of interest, I note that in the diagrams with the instructions
    printed by Dumfries and Galloway News, Castle-Douglas in 1969, the two
    couples are show with a straight line directly connecting the man and
    woman.  This would indicate "nearer hands joined".  
    
    However in the hard cover book "The Dances of an Island Clan" published
    in memory of Andrew Rankin, who composed the music, when he died in
    1985, the man and woman are shown with an angled connecting line, which
    could very well be seen to indicate promenade.
    
    I'm sure "nearer hands" is correct and original.
