If you enjoy Celtic music then you will enjoy Highland Storm. Bagpipes, drums, Gaelic singing, highland dancing, step dancing and more! We loved this show.

Three generations enjoyed the show when we were on the Island earlier this month. If you enjoy bagpipes and highland dancing this is a "don't miss" experience.
