A quote: »the key that has always made this dance so wonderful is the flirting that dancing couple can do on bars 9-10 and 13-14 ; <...> if you actually set to your partner, advancing and at the last moment just slipping in BtoB to face and turn the appropriate corner, it's tremendous fun. The moment is all too rare, as apparently few teachers teach it this way, but it's a moment I savour.
Espagnole: both W lead RHJ to M side, cross and cast back to exchanged places while Men cross to W side, lead RHJ back to M side crossing to exchanged places ; all turn P EH (2,1)
The original tune is a hornpipe
Note: The dry white sands on the north-west side of the Isle of Eigg are said to produce a musical sound when walked upon.
