Danceboy’s Scottish Country Dance Journal.

 Official Website                                                                                                    Created Nov 2018.


The original Netherlee Scottish Country Dance Club was founded by Joyce McArthur in 1950. The club operated very successfully for many years until its demise in 2018 -  see the Club History page in the main menu……...

The original club website was created in November 2003. The founding webmaster is currently in the process of replacing the Netherlee site with a personal scottish country dance journal. The journal will continue to provide the same services and information as the original site. It will, for the foreseeable future, retain the original domain name ‘’.

This site will be subject to continuous change over the next few months until it reaches a state of stable equilibrium!The webmaster hopes the website continues to be of interest and indeed useful for the not inconsiderable number of folk  who regularly visit the site in the past  (see ‘Hits Count’ in the main menu).

Away Weekend 2018

(Thursday 26th to Friday 27th October)

The outing in 2018 was again to Fairfield House Hotel, 12 Fairfield Road, Ayr. It was a bittersweet gathering as it was the final Away Weekend of the Netherlee Scottish Country Dance Club. The accommodation was first class.

Elizabeth and Iain prepared the dance programme and shared the calling on the night. We danced Thursday evening, Friday morning and Friday evening, returning home Saturday.

Several of those attending expressed a wish to meet again, perhaps just to meet for coffee or dinner or even arrange a night which might include a dance programme.

Away Weekend regulars attended a wee dinner dance with Sandy Nixon playing for us in the hotel in August 2018. It was an enjoyable occasion for auld friends to meet. -  See photograph, bottom, right..
