The Soldiers of Killiecrankie Ceilidh is your chance to experience a traditional family ceilidh first hand in the height of the summer. Ceilidhs more often run over the winter months in Scotland and are particularly popular at Hogmanay and New Year.
What sets our Soldiers of Killiecrankie Ceilidh apart from many others is that the re-enactors and performers join in, in period costume, not only dancing, but with stories, songs and playing music, as at ceilidhs of old.
Ceilidh originated in Scotland and Ireland, where Gaelic is spoken. In Scottish Gaelic it is spelled cèilidh (Scottish Gaelic pronunciation: [ˈkʲʰeːli]), and in Irish it is spelled céilí (Irish pronunciation: [ˈceːlʲiː]). (Thank you Wikipedia)
A 'ceilidh' is a communal entertainment where stories and tales, poems and ballads are rehearsed and recited, and songs are sung, The Soldiers of Killiecrankie Ceilidh is held in the BIG Tent of the battlefield. 8pm to midnight.
There is a bar and hopefully some food too (at the time of writing this, it is still being confirmed).
