Top award for Mod idol
A 22-year-old singer from Skye has been named Gaelic Ambassador of the Year, as the Royal National Mod gets under way.
Eilidh Cormack, from Portree, said she was “absolutely delighted”.
The Gaelic cultural festival began in Dunoon on Friday night, with a special celebration honouring Scotland’s Year of Young People. Over the next week there will be more than 200 competitions and events in Highland dancing, sport, literature, drama, Gaelic music and song.
