Comments by Anne Taylor (formerly Grant) from the description of Moonen Bay:

I devised Broadford Bay in 1990 and it appears in the Skye Collection Vol 1 and was adopted by the RSCDS in the Leaflet Dances in 2001. Despite the popularity of the dance, the Chase and Turn movement (Bars 17-24) still appears to pose problems with many dancers.

I have devised Moonen Bay to try to clarify the Chase and Turn movement (Bars 9-16). I have often suggested that Broadford Bay could be taught firstly in Strathspey time which may help the dancers to understand the movement. Good Luck!
