Two Busy Weekends

There are the first signs in the countryside of the coming autumn. The hazel along Ormsaigbeg is heavy with nuts, and the first flowerings of heather are beginning to colour the hills. And, with August, come two more of the year's big events in the village.

Sonafest 2010 is a weekend of live music at The Sonachan Hotel, starting this Saturday at 8pm, with performances from Skerryvore, Gunna Sound and Trail West. Sunday is Family Day, with a farmers' market, stalls, bucking bronco, clairvoyant, BBQ, balloon race and, from 1.00pm, more live music from Trail West and Gunna Sound. Tickets £12 from or phone 01972 510 211.

Next weekend is the West Adnamurchan Regatta, starting on Thursday 5th August at 11.00am with the Ellan Vannin Wind Surfing and Sailing Race. The main events take place on Friday 6th August, with briefings at 8.30am and the first race at 10.00am. Then, in the evening, the Regatta Committee is running a licensed dance featuring Gunna Sound, in Kilchoan Community Centre, starting at 8.00pm.
