Bought tickets for the Hogmanay Ceilidh as was travelling to Oban for the New Year. Great atmosphere, great band, reasonably priced drinks. Had a lovely night in a very relaxed atmosphere, would definitely recommend.

A Memorable Holiday Highlight
Oct. 2019
My husband and I spent a very enjoyable evening at the Ceilidh Night at The View last week. We found the atmosphere friendly and relaxed with folks of all ages joining in. The evening began at 9 pm and tickets were modestly priced. The musicians, including a piper, were excellent and the lively traditional Scottish country dancing tunes make you want to dance. It does not matter if you are new to ceilidh dancing because a caller explains the routine before each dance. It's best to wear shoes that you can dance energetically in. No one will judge you! A bar is available.

“Heel and toe, heel and toe...”
Oct. 2019
Never done any Scottish dancing? Don’t know any of the old time dances? Here’s you chance to do both and have a ton of fun doing it! The band talks you through the dances before the music starts, then keeps up a running commentary throughout. The resulting controlled chaos is as much fun to watch as it is do. Everyone seems to have a great time and everything goes, girls dancing with girls, boys with boys, old with young. And all to toe-tapping music that gets your blood flowing and builds up your energy banks. Give it a go if you you get a chance!

An enjoyable evening. Great band and dancing. Just think the building needs updating. New windows would help.

Chaotic - but good fun
Sep. 2019
We booked online about an hour or so before the evening started. We were able to use the barcode on our phone for entry. The piper and the band were excellent. They explained the dances but with many non English speakers and a lot of youngsters it was a little chaotic. However everyone seemed to have a good time, we had forgotten how exhausting country dancing can be!

Not impressive

We expected more entertainment and less “dance training” it was good for younger folks but overwhelming for 65 plus

Hi, we're very sorry our ceilidh was average. we do promote them as a dance experience that doesn't necessarily require participation but we value your feedback and will continue to explore a shorter show experience for those that just want entertainment.
