The Scottish Branles (Branles d'Ecosse) are found in Orchesography by Thoinot Arbeau, which contains two Scottish branles; these were supposed to be the first two in a suite. There are a couple of pieces by Estienne du Tertre with the same title, but they are said not to fit these choreographies.

Steps Used

Choreography

As with most branles, these dances are performed in a line of people holding hands or (if enough people are present) a circle. It is not necessary for the dancers to be paired with partners.
