A CLANSMAN who flew in for this month’s Clan Ranald Gathering at the Arisaig Games generously donated a trip in a light aircraft as a prize for the event’s raffle.
This year’s games took place yesterday (July 26) at Traigh Farm, Arisaig, and the flight prize was due to be drawn during the event.
Fraser MacDougall, treasurer of Arisaig Games, told the Lochaber Times: ‘ What an excellent experience and a fantastic gift from Mr MacDonald. We are immensely grateful to him.’
The games were preceded on Tuesday evening by a cèilidh barbecue on the games field. There was a village parade through Arisaig at 10.15am on games morning and a ceilidh dance in Astley Hall, Arisaig, in the evening.
Music this year was provided by Trail West, with the Lochaber Ceilidh Trailers playing on Tuesday night.
The games’ main sponsor was Ardnamurchan Distillery and events included a variety of Highland Games contests. Full games report next week.
