Comment

This is part of a demonstration of many linked dances, adapted for the occasion. The set is a "broadwise set": up/down is at right angles to the length of the set. The dancing is of demonstation quality.

The Glasgow Highlanders 2/4L · S32

2 chords. On 2nd chord 1W crosses down to R of P, 2W moves 1 place up and 2M crosses to her place, so 1c faces 2c.

1–
1c+2c R&L, finish with 2M between 2W & 1W facing down and NHJ, 1M behind him
9–
1W+2M+2W dance down the middle, 1M following ; all turn (W inwards, M R about) 1M NHJ with the women, and 2M following, dance up to finish in line across, the W on the sidelines facing P in the middle (1c on M side)
17–
1c+2c set to P: Glasgow Highlanders step (M may do some other Highland step)
25–
Reels4 {6} across the dance | 1c lead down the M side and 2c up the W side to face next couple. On reaching the top, 2c waits inactive on own side ; on reaching the bottom 1c waits inactive on own side.

Notes: The RSCDS prescribes a 4c set, but the tradition is a longwise set 'for as many as will'.
