There's more than meets the eye in what is known as 'dancer's luck'.  True, some dancers seem always to be luckier than others, and just happen to be on the spot when the prima ballerina sprains her ankle or goes down with 'flu.  But of course nothing is achieved by luck alone, and 'single-mindedness' plays a large part in dancer's luck.  So it was with Annette Dancy when she stepped into the chief role of the new ballet, La Sylphide.

This is the story of a ballet company on a tour which began in London and ended at the Skye Gathering Ball in far-away Portree.  In it we meet all the people we grew to know in Dancing Peel; Annette and Maximillian, her brother; Angus MacCrimmon and his cousin, Sheena - descendant of the MacDonalds, once Lords of Skye and of the Isles.  Some newcomers too, principally Jaimie Gordon, nicknamed 'Cock o' the North' because of his prowess as a climer.  Also a family of Americans who are living in Jaimie's ancestral castle situated on the shores of Loch Slapin in the Island of Skye.
