The Tenth Anniversary dance which is being danced at the Leeds Festival this year describes the use of the "Highland Travelling Step". I cannot find any reference in the RSCDS Manual or on as to what this step is, can anyone please through any light on this 'mysterious step'?

Aha! We in Cambridge had a Highland workshop in May, so I've seen it.

In quick time, it's pretty much the same as skip-change, but before extending the working foot, you tap the front of your other calf.

In Strathspey time, it's better to show than explain: gives an example.

YouTube has lots of videos of these - 'Foursome Reel' for Strathspey; 'Highland Reel' for quick; often as 'Strathspey & Highland Reel', or combined with the Reel of Tulloch.
