Bruce McClure was known as a dancer, teacher, and performer of Scottish Dance.
Scotland's Dunvegan Castle, towering above the rugged coastline of Loch Dunvegan on the northwestern corridor of the Isle of Skye (a Norse word meaning "misty island"), pays silent homage to the romance and history of the MacLeod of MacLeod Clan, the progenitors of the Mighty McClures. The fortified enclave, surrounded by picturesque gardens, rolling hills and waterfalls, and on the ocean side by a colony of seals, has withstood the trials and tributions, the ebb and flow of eight hundred years of triumph and tragedy.
At one time, Bruce had a television program in Scotland.
There are two known films that featured Bruce:
- "Margaret Morris Technique; with Bruce McClure in practice costume. Highland Fling; with the Company. Foursome Reel; with the Company. Double Sword; with Bruce McClure and Andrew Rolla." Celtic Ballet of Scotland, 16mm, 1954.
