Best night out in Scotland! For a small fee you can learn Ceildilh dances and try them out to traditional music. Also, you can see Highland dancing, which was a real privilege. If you're going alone - be brave and ask others to dance! A...More

I swear I don't know why this ISN'T number one on Trip Advisor! Touristy? yes, but unbelievably relaxed and fun. We were there on a Thursday night for Scottish country dancing. Terrific live band with a fantastic piper. Easy, precise instructions and repetitive steps, everyone...More

After researching places to enjoy a Ceilidh (social event with traditional singing and dancing) I found Skipinnish. The music was great and the owners have found a formula of teaching dancing (about every other song) to tourists that can sustain the traditional music. The venue...More

Good live music venue, the traditional Highland music really lets you immelse yourself in the Scottish culture. Quite a cheap bar and plenty of seating. The two guys performing were good and interacted with the Audience getting a lot of them up and dancing. More...More
