Research carried out by a senior lecturer at Scotland’s Strathclyde University has shown that Scottish dancing has definite wellbeing benefits.

A lively ceilidh or two works wonders it seems.

But worry not if you have been cursed with two left feet, there are many other ways to keep your mind, body, soul, and feet in tip-top condition
