Another fine day to remember
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.
