With just days to go the final preparations are being put in place for this year’s Dunvegan Show.

Organised by Duirinish & Bracadale Agricultural Association the event is once again being as a fun day out for all the family.

To be held at Dunvegan School on Saturday 30 July activities get underway from 10am when judging begins.

Last year's youngest competitor, Tim Nicolson

Other events during the day include a dog show, horticultural, home produce and handicrafts competition and sale, as a well as vintage tractors, a sheep shearing demonstration, highland dancers, bouncy castles, a display of agricultural wartime memorabilia and rally cars.

As well as refreshments and hot food their will also be free children’s pony rides and the day events will culminate at 5pm with the main prize presentation.

In the evening the Show Dance takes place at Dunvegan Hall featuring Passing Places and will run from 9pm until late.

One disappointment this year will be the cancellation of the Horse Show. After three very bad and wet winters it was reluctantly decided that Mrs Macleod’s Croft – where the event is normally held – was not suitable for use this year. However,  organisers are committed to having the horse show back in 2017.
