Talk about authentic highland weddings, this is it! Anne-Margaret and John Anderson kick off their wedding ceilidh at Crear with a traditional Wedding Reel, a spectacular traditional first dance with the maid of honour and best man. Great piping too from one of the guests! We had such a brilliant night! Congratulations again to Mr and Mrs Anderson!

Congratulations Sam and Fran Kent! Thanks so much to you and you guests for a truly brilliant night! Cheers for the photos!
The band were honoured to play at a very special multinational wedding at one of the finest wedding venues in Scotland on Friday. Achnagairn House is an elegant traditional country manor house situated a few miles from Beauly, Inverness-shire. The band was overwhelmed by the enthusiasm of the dancers, most of whom were foreign and so completely new to Scottish ceilidhs. The dance floor was full all night!
The Cask Strength four-piece band was requested for the ceilidh, so the band was delighted to be joined again by ace fiddler Adam Sutherland. Both John and Adam hail from nearby Loch Ness-side so it was home to visit the folks’ after the gig.
Congratulations to Liz and Naser on their marriage, and we wish them all the best in their future together. Hamish, John & Stevie
What a great night we all had at the beautiful Pollockshields Burgh Hall on 11th August! Congratulations to the happy couple Blair and Megan Taylor! Lovely people and great dancing all round. Thank you so much for having us and best wishes! Hamish, John & Stevie.
What a stunning wedding in early June up in Strathspey! Thank you Mhairi and David for hiring us – it was an honour to play for you and all the guests! All the best, Hamish, John and Stevie
