I went to two events - a gathering at Duntholm Castle with Photogs, a piper and a Gaillic singer - and a gathering in Staffin with John MacPherson - author of Unknown Hebrides. Both good fun - and accessible without a car since the ferrry from the Isle of Lewis where we live is expensive with a car!
Also saw an exhibition in Uig of George Wilson Washington prints of the area which was excellent.
They has a photo comp too with £500 first prize in each of 3 sections - and a silver gelatin print one one section - which was cool since I was the only person there with film in my camara [not my picture that won I must add].The plan, I'm told is to make the thing much bigger and better but they need a bit of help.
The weather was wonderful and as was the welcome. Shall go again.
Thanks for update on how things went. It sounds like a great festival. Will try to go next year now that I know the rough dates. I might even try and enter a picture or two to the competition...!
