New members welcome – please contact Marie Macdonald on 01445 791264. Costs are £3 per night. Visitors are also welcome to join us, provided they have some knowledge of Scottish Country dancing.
At the end of each winter session we get together with the group from Gairloch for an evening of dancing, with a buffet provided by the hosts for that year.
Other dances will be danced throughout the session.
The Torridon Country Dancing group was started in 1973, and is affiliated to the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society. Our branch is Inverness. Country dancing is good for the body and mind. It has proven to be one of the best aerobic exercises, and the memorising of formations is also good for the brain.
This is a social class and we welcome all new dancers. Why don’t you come along and give it a try.
Strupag is Gaelic for a cup of tea.
This is fortnightly on a Friday from 12.00 until 14.00 and our team of “girls” provide homemade soups, a selection of freshly made sandwiches, delicious home baking and much more… but if you are counting the calories there is fruit salad available and yogurts. You can eat as much or as little as you like for a minimum donation of £4.50.
Craft Workshops are held on the second Monday of each month.
There are over 30 ladies attending from all over the area including Gairloch.
We started out as a patchwork workshop which was so popular it now offers a range of different crafts. These vary on any given day but include: soft furnishing, dressmaking, fabric painting, bags, parchment craft, sugar craft, beadwork, crochet, water colour painting, tile mosaics and any other skill that members of the group want to share.
New members do not need to have any skills at all, only a desire to find out more or share craft knowledge. All materials can be provided free.
The day is extremely sociable and costs just £5 including a delicious lunch.
Holiday makers are very welcome to join us for the day.
