Annual Show & Sports

Last Friday saw the annual West Ardnamurchan Show and Sports which commenced early with the sheep judging. Hughie MacLachlan won Best in Show with his blackface, and judge Iain MacKay of Torloisk said, "Overall the quality and presentation of the sheep has been very good indeed."

There were more entries than usual in the baking, craft, gardening and children’s competitions, which were judged by Penny Horner and Sine Ferguson.

A visitor from Mull said: “I don’t know how they do it over here in Kilchoan – but the sun always seems to shine on their show!” 

For the first time this year the show included a display of Highland Dancing by Connie MacLennan.... well as piping by members of the Tobermory High School Pipe Band.

Rosie Curtis, chair of the show committee, said: “We want to make sure that everybody is welcome at our show, with plenty for everyone to see and do. The committee did a fantastic job, so I want to say a big thank you to them as well as to all the local businesses and individuals who were kind enough to donate prizes. It’s everyone working together that makes our annual show such a success.”

Many thanks to Ricky Clark for the photos and Pat Glenday for the report.
