Extra info
The title of this dance ...

The title of this dance refers to a mountainous peninsula on the west coast of Scotland, between Loch Goil and Loch Long. The name is an anglicisation of the Gaelic baile na greine or »sunny cattle pasture«, which must be considered somewhat ironic since the area is not particularly suitable for cattle.
