Highland dancing

Cowal Highland Gathering is host to the Scottish and World Highland Dancing Championships – the most important events in the Highland dancing calendar. As a competitor you’ll be pitched against the finest dancers and perform in front of what’s possibly the most discerning dancing audience anywhere in the world. Are you aiming for the Cowal Gold Medal?

The dancing gets underway on Thursday with the Scottish National Highland Dancing Championship. Friday sees dancers from the US, Canada, Australia and South Africa join the Scots to compete in the Scottish Championship and the qualifiers for the World Highland Dancing Championship. And on Saturday it’s the finals of the World Championship.
We also hold competitions to encourage local, emerging Highland dancing talent. If you’re a younger dancer at the start of your career, it’s a great opportunity to experience this great event and dance in front of the experts.
