Another fine day to re­mem­ber

The Oban Times - - Leisure 13 -

IT WAS a day to be re­mem­bered for all the right rea­sons at Mull High­land Games last Thurs­day at Er­ray Park, Tober­mory.

Firstly there was the great weather, al­beit in­ter­mit­tently, there was a crowd in good voice and a wide range of com­pe­ti­tiors.

Of course there was the ex­cep­tional Mull welcome and the many vol­un­teers all re­lax­ing, hav­ing put the field up over the pre­vi­ous seven nights.

It was cer­tainly worth it for the com­peti­tors who ‘al­most’, on a few oc­ca­sions, came close to top­pling long-held field records.

But the best of the day was get­ting out and about and meet­ing friends old and new for the an­nual mix of fun and laugh­ter that is Mull High­land Games.

The games are also a gath­er­ing of clans with a proud Mull as­so­ci­a­tion.

The Ma­cLean Clan showed off their num­bers with visi­tors from near and far mak­ing a trip to the is­land, while the MacIn­tyres rep­re­sented fam­i­lies both on and off the is­land.

The Macleod fam­ily, who own the Tober­mory Ho­tel and the Galleon Grill, and take on the bulk of the or­gan­is­ing of the event, work hard be­hind the scenes to make sure ev­ery­thing goes ac­cord­ing to plan on the day.
