We were delighted to join a Ceilidh for Hogmany and were not disappointed in terms of the ceilidh band, which was fantastic. They found a good mixture between ceilidh dancing songs and a few other scottish songs as interludes, to give you a chance to catch your breath. The dances were also well explained by the band, so everyone knew what they were doing, regardless of experience.
The venue itself has a great dancefloor (but watch out for a moving floorboard!), however it was a bit dingy inside, some of the chairs and tables were a bit dirty, though it did not distract too much from the evening. There were not enough tables and chairs for the number of people there, and infact there was also not enough people for the size of the dancefloor, perhaps some more promotion is required. In general it was a good crowd, a mixture of locals and tourists of all ages. After midnight, a rock band came on, they were good but a bit noisy and we left at this point.
Recommended, the ceilidh band was great and we had a good evening, but the owners could spend a bit more effort on the interior and increasing the numbers for the ceilidh.
