Quality (of the dancing)
Good (What does this mean?)

Twice through in a 2 couple set. Since the couples start opposite each other and beside partner, the end of the final reels here are adapted to reorganise the set for the next repeat.

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 across.

1c+2c R&L, finish with 2M between 2W & 1W facing down and NHJ, 1M behind him
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)
1c+2c set to P: Glasgow Highlanders step (M may do some other Highland step)
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'.
