Welcome to Helensburgh RSCDS

We are a Branch of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society, mainly based in the town of Helensburgh in Argyll and Bute, Scotland.

Helensburgh is a pretty little town about 25 miles west of Glasgow on the north bank of the Clyde and is surrounded by stunning scenery including Loch Lomond which is only around 10 minutes drive away.

We run classes which cater for all levels and ages of dancers, and throughout the year we run a number of dances including the Branch Weekend in April.

Picture Raffle

One of our Branch members, Jim Murdoch, who sadly passed away last year used to paint and supply pictures as prizes for our raffles at dances. After his death the Branch were given some of his pictures and several have been in our raffles as prizes over the last year.
We now have one left, a much bigger water colour painting of a winter scene. The frame measures 44cms x 34cms (approx.17 x 13 inches) and the picture 28cms x 20cms (approx.11 x 8 inches).
The picture is to be raffled and drawn at our Christmas Dance in December. Tickets will be on sale at £2.00 each and can be purchased at classes and dances.
