Dancing Hall

  • Description

    "Dancing Hall is located outside of Callaly Village and is a site where traditionally convicts from the local region were held before being transported to the local magistrates at Powburn. Dancing Hall derives its name from the fact that the majority of convicts were on their way to be hanged for various crimes, that is, to "dance on the hangman's rope". Wikipedia.
