Danceboy’s Scottish Country Dance Journal.

 Official Website                                                                                                    Created Nov 2018.

This developing website journal will support the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society in

its efforts to promote Scottish Country Dancing in the UK and throughout the world!

The basic aims of the journal are:-

Fast access to the Mickel, Martice, Pitlochry and Red Deer websites will continue to be provided.

This new site evolved from the ex-Netherlee site and recognises the Netherlee Scottish Country Dance Club’s proud history by providing an account of its history and providing access to its photograph Gallery.


 1.  The Dundee Reel (J8x40) 3C (4C set) appears in the Border Book. See SCD Dictionary - the video on the site does not correspond with dance description in words. The latest response from several knowlegeable sources indicate the video is wrong and the words in the Trinity crib sheet and in MiniCrib are correct. However, the question still lingers in my mind, why would the dancers (are they from Dundee?) dance it differently from the written word?  Click here for two different word descriptions.

 2.  Perth and Ericht SCD Clubs are first to publish their 2019 summer dancing programmes -  not just dates -  well done them!!

 3.  The Duns 65th May Weekend details are now available………see crib sheets for Friday 17th  and Saturday 18th May 2019.

 4. There’s a fund-raising dance in North Kessock Hall announced by the ‘Save our Inverness Ball’ team. It’s a good programme with Frank Thomson’s Band. A copy of my crib sheet is available on this page -  see ‘crib sheets’. For full information about the dance and available accommodation go to the Inverness Highland Ball website  click here.

 5.  The Abbeyview SCD programme for 23/4/19 includes a dance from the latest Dunfermline 90 th Anniversary Book ‘The Skeely Skipper’  J3x32 (thanks Aileen) which is currently not available on MiniCrib, the SCD Dictionary site or on the nearby Dunfermline Branch website. Does anyone have a precis of the dance which they could email me? Click here to email me -  thanks in anticipation. Publication of the

Abbeyview crib sheet awaits receipt of the precis for the dance.
