In 1988, a group of Scottish Country Dancers from the Washington DC and Philadelphia area dance groups decided to start a Scottish Weekend in the Mid-Atlantic area, emphasizing the very best in live music, quality teaching, good food and "controlled abandon." The result was Scottish Weekend at Buffalo Gap (West Virginia), in September 1989.
