412. Morris Dancers

Morris dancers are a rare sight in Scotland, but once a year we are treated to a visit from a group comprising dancers from several different groups around England on their annual 'Scotchfest'.  They stay in Brechin for a few nights and travel from there to perform in various communities around the North East.  This morning they performed at the harbour before heading up to Stonehaven.

Fascinating fact -  the earliest confirmed performance of morris dancing in England was 19th May 1448.
