We had an amazingly fabulous evening - from the Scottish country dances to the disco afterward and everything in between. It didn't matter that we didn't know the dances - the band gave us all the instructions, there was staff helping, and they were easy and fun. The band was engaging and their music totally awesome. The dancing is great... More

Good local but professional entertainment. A good selection of acts and staff ask you up to dance if you don't know how to do it!

Varied programme. Close contact with performers. The professionalism and talents were exceptionally good and a great experience. It was helpful to have the songs explained when sung in Gaelic. Stairs to hall a problem for handicapped.

We had bought tickets online for the Saturday night show, and when we arrived the nice young lady outside said the show had been cancelled. Then the magnetic personality called Angus came downstairs apologizing, handing us our money back and giving us all copies of their new CD. He suggested we come back the following week for another show, and... More

Had a lovely evening at Skipinnish - fabulous dancing and good fun! Luckily they explain all the dances for people like me, who have two left feet. Got in half price at the door thanks to the hostel I was staying in. Would definitely go again.

We were looking forward to an evening that promised so much. The musicians, dancers and singer were all excellent and obviously very talented. It started late due to the late arrival of a large coach party then after 3-4 songs and once dance the band needed to have a 10 minute break. On their return they played a couple of... More
