Aerial dancers took to the skies in Fort William recently when the Nevis Centre hosted a grand outdoor spectacle.

Swinging back and forth and shimmying up and down five metre long ropes with some great acrobatics, performers Danuta Ramos and Claire Cook enthralled the audience at each of their three performances on a giant swing.

Still socially distanced, a lucky few in the audience enjoyed the Lochaber sunshine during the half hour long shows before being invited to have go themselves and have fun swinging to a unique soundtrack, activated by movement.

As the artistes said: ‘Life was never better on a swing, the higher the better.

‘Feel the rush of air past your face and be inspired with what you can do with a
swing.’

As part of their 2021 tour, The Swings have been travelling all over Scotland,
with Skye and Oban also part of their Highland itinerary.
