Hi there!

The entire British Pathe archive (85000 historical films) is now available on YouTube, free of view (See: youtube/britishpathe). Among them some Highland Games films are available. I've, from some of them, extracted the Highland dance footage part and put them on my YouTube account.

Enjoy! :)

Wow! These are awesome! How great to see how parts of the various dances were performed 50, 60 or even close to 100 years ago. The costumes are interesting as well - pictures of dancers in vintage highland outfits are fairly common but the old hornpipe and jig outfits are something to see too.

I agree! Very instructive (costume, tempo, steps...)! It looks both close and far from today!

I've asked Cowal Gathering organisers help to name the dancers on these videos but if one of you has info, please share!
