A PAIR of bonnie bravehearts have high-kicked their way into the very first Glasgow Tattoo.

Veteran Highland dancers Lindsay McMahon and Vikki Warnock will be part of a team of 40 top performers at the spectacle.

They will be joined by pipe and drum bands from the UK, Ireland, Spain, Holland and Germany at the Hydro in Glasgow on today , tomorrow and Sunday

The girls are pupils of Jackson Dance Academy in Greenock and are thrilled to be flying the flag for Inverclyde.

Lindsay, 24, from Greenock, said: “I can’t wait.

“I’ve performed at Highland Games and toured Germany along with a pipe band and taken part in a Highland Festival in Paris, so I’m getting to travel quite a bit, but I’ve never done anything like this before.”

Lindsay, a staff nurse at the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow, has been dancing with the Jackson academy since she was only nine.

She said: “Linda is very proud of us and likes to see us getting these opportunities.

“She’s great, really supportive.”

Also on the bill will be performances from The Glasgow Tattoo Highland Dance Troupe, choreographed by world champ David Wilton, and Innova Irish Dance Company, who were semi-finalists in Britain’s Got Talent in 2014. 

Vikki, 21, who lives in Gourock, is equally excited and says it will give them the chance to work with their hero.

She said: “It’s a really good opportunity for us. David Wilton who is organising the tattoo is a dance icon.”

Vikki, who has been taught by Linda since she was only four, recently toured Germany and performed in some big arenas but says the Hydro is her biggest gig to date.

Dance teacher Linda will be in the front row of fans from the academy on Saturday night cheering her proteges on.

She said: “They both love Highland Dancing and they’re so dedicated.

“I’ve been teaching them all those years, I’m like their mother. This is a great opportunity for them and I’m very proud.”
