Sun shines on Dunvegan Show
THE SUN kept its hat on for the 2015 Dunvegan show on Saturday July 25.
The day started with judging of home produce, horticulture, handicrafts, art, photography and children’s classes. There was an increase in entries across the board.
The annual and ever popular children’s music competition was organised by local music teacher, Nan Cleghorn, this year. Judges Meg Rosher - wind instruments - and Maria Pelletti - guitar - were both ‘highly impressed’ by the ‘standard of musicianship and enthusiasm’ from the competitors.
New classes introduced for the dog show this year proved to be a hit with spectators, they included best party trick. Best in show winner was Bailey the border collie handled and owned by John Pickering, from Broadford.
Children enjoyed games and activities such as tug ‘o’ war, body zorbs, Dunia the stilt, bouncy castle. Free pony rides were the biggest hit among youngsters. Outdoor leaders from Skye trekking centre introduced Bertie and Selkie to the crowds and many took advantage of the free pony rides. Musical entertainment was provided once again by Portree high school pipe band, a popular attraction with visitors to Dunvegan Show.
