Although Thistledoon has again faded into the mists, we are fortunate that we only need to wait a year for it to reappear. Next year promises to be as joyful and fulfilling as previous years. 

The Thistle School of Scottish Country Dance provides instruction in the correct techniques and manner of Scottish Country Dancing, the historic and contemporary social dancing of Scotland. Teachers at the school are certificated by the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society (RSCDS).
