Thanks for the link Rob.

I read the delightful Festival overview to my Kentucky Highland spouse, Beverly Buchanan, and then turned hopefully towards her in search of a sign that she'd fund the travel, lodging, meals, etc. on my behalf.

Her only remark was: "If I go over there, I'll never come back." So, as you see, I've got a bit of work ahead of me.

Thanks again for posting the information. I'll send Mrs. Thomson the exact change in the case I manage to sell the concept here @ home.

Just printed off the provisional programme for Clonsay which I got by E-mail.
Looks as though it is going to be a very busy fun packed festival. Hope I have the stamina.

I was even hoping to walk/run the McFees but that might be asking a bit too much.

and probably after the Fest.
Depending on stamina......

The warm weather must be putting people in the mood to go to an island paradise and a folk festival so....

Well after three weeks its about time this got another airing.
I know you dont mind

Went to the Isle of Muck for few days to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary.
Angie entertained with some songs in glorious weather on the Islands open day June 7th.
If you like islands you wil like Muck.
Pity it does not have a festival.
Population is only about 40.

Been there, done that, and definitely going next year!!
Forgot to get the T shirt!!!!

But did get the poster signed by most of the artists.

One of the best festivals I have been to in a long time.

Oh yes and just visiting the island is something else!
