This was a great night out. The entertainment was awesome and appeared to get better as the night wore on. Not sure if this was proportional to the amount of local whisky i consumed.

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

The large room where the music and dancing took place had a beautiful view of the bay. The performers were great! We had an excellent evening of singing along, learning new dances and hearing great music.

This was billed as the highlight of our best of Scotland tour with Highland Heritage. We probably expected more, but what we got was a bit disappointing. OK one of the band was sick which didn't help but it was more like a sales promotion for their CD`s than a concert. the three band members were very accomplished musicians but... More
