What is the Gathering of the Clans Highland Festival?

Ceilidh (Dance)- pronounced kay-lee is a social gathering involving dancing, storytelling and live music. This year we are proud to welcome the award winning Derina Harvey Band as the crown jewel of our festival! And in true Scottish spirit there will, of course, be a bar!
