A YOUNG Highland dancer from Helensburgh has just won her 100th - and 101st, and 102nd - championship title, at the age of just 11.

Eilidh Gammons, who started at Hermitage Academy in the summer, earned her centenary of trophies at the recent Solway championship.

The Margaret Rose School of Dance pupil has been attracting rave reviews on stage since she took up the discipline at two years old, and mum Lynn Hendry couldn’t be prouder of her little star.

She told the Advertiser: “Eilidh is a very talented Highland dancer who has worked very hard to achieve and maintain her winning spree. She has now won 102 championship titles, quite an achievement for an 11-year-old.

“Her first championship win was the seven and under-nine-years Commonwealth Championship in August 2015 when she was just seven-years-old.

A few days later she competed in her first Cowal Gathering winning both the seven and under-nine years Scottish National and Scottish Open titles.

Eilidh has won both the Scottish National and Scottish Open Championship titles in her age category at Cowal every year and also the Argyllshire Championship since she first became eligible to compete in it in 2016.

Cowal Gathering was particularly special this year as Eilidh’s elder sister, Catriona, also won the Scottish National Championship in her age category - 16 years.

It was quite a special year to have sisters both becoming Scottish National Champions.

“She has won championship titles in Scotland, England, Northern Ireland and further afield - Canada, USA and Australia.
