Lochaber agricultural show
THIS year’s Lochaber agricultural show was hailed a ‘great success’ by organisers, with a high number of entries in all categories.
Heavy rain on Friday night cleared in time for the 118th show at Inverlochy Castle farm on Saturday and attendees enjoyed two bird of prey displays and the ever- popular pet parade.
The show was opened by Lochaber agricultural society president, Malcolm Cameron, who presented a long- service award to David Duncan, for more than 30 years of work with the group.
John Weller of the society, thanked volunteers for ensuring a great event: ‘ The show was a great success, with high quality stock and competition throughout. Although wet the night before, a dry bright morning ensured good attendance figures, just slightly down on last year’s.
‘Our grateful thanks go out to the Rotary Club of Lochaber and the local Sea Cadets for manning the gates and taking care of the car parking. Also to any organisation, or individual that contributed in any way with financial help or services to make the show go ahead.’
Christopher Cameron of Strone farm, Banavie, picked up the Hon Wills supreme cattle champion cup for his pure limousine bull, while Kevin MacKinnon of Glen Fruin, Helensburgh, won overall sheep champion for his black face shearling.
