Charlotte Simpson - Cowal Highland Gathering.

Charlotte was one of 57 competitors in the 12 Yrs Scottish Championship

Dancers came to Dunoon from all around the world to take part – from as far afield as Western Australia, Canada and the United States of America.

Charlotte was the 3rd place trophy winner overall, out of the 57 12-year-old dancers competing. This award qualified her to go forward and compete the next day in the World Juvenile Highland Dancing Championship Final.

In the Final itself, Charlotte performed exceptionally well, and was rewarded with a 6th place medal in the Highland Fling, and a 4th place medal in the Sword Dance. This was beyond all expectation for her this year – she was the only 12-year-old in the Final to place in the medals. Charlotte was one of 57 competitors in the 12 Yrs Scottish Championship.
