     The schottische is a partnered country dance of continental-European origin. The Highland Schottische is a combination of the common schottische and a variant of the reel. (A variation popular in Argyll in the 1920s and '30s focused on showing the man's dancing abilities and as such became known as a form of ‘peacock dance'.)  

     In Scottish Country Dancing, the Highland Schottische setting step is a special setting step, taking twice as long as the Strathspey setting step but in the ceilidh dance Schottische it is performed at about twice the pace!  Hence the use of fast pipe march tunes in 2/4 time.
