Cragganmore did not fail to disappoint! They played for a University of St Andrews’ Charity Ball and ensured we all danced into the night! The dances were called clearly, the music was very lively, and everyone had an amazing time!

Katherine AitchisonWedding Ceilidh
We had the pleasure of being at a birthday ceilidh where the band was playing. The music was terrific for dancing, and the volume was such that those not on the floor were able to chat. Interaction with guests was excellent; great fun was had by all!
