Graeme Clark, of Wet Wet Wet fame, heads for Skye in early September.
 
After bringing three shows to the west coast of Scotland, including a successful hometown Clydebank gig, Graeme is taking his collection of thoughts and songs to a wider audience around the UK.
 
Graeme states: “It’s always nice to go out and play, but touring gives a consistency to the performance of the songs.  How can you not love grabbing the guitar and a suitcase then stretch your legs on the roads of GB?  I’ve toured solo before and it’s always a thrill to visit and play venues I’ve never played before.

The Skye Bridge 10k will be held on Saturday 11 August.

The road race will coincide with Kyleakin Gala and will start at 12pm.

Registration will take place from 10am at Kyleakin Community Hall.

Jazz, a ceilidh dance, fiddle nights and even crime-solving - all of the above and much more will entertain crowds during the 2018 Fèis an Eilein/The Skye Festival.

Taking place between 3 July and 28 August, at venues around the Isle of Skye, the Skye Festival is a celebration of world-class performing arts and unique Island culture.

The opening event for the Fèis brings together an informal concert with various guests, young and old, for a family orientated night of song, dance and music.

Organised by Sleat-based performing arts promotion charity, SEALL (Skye Events for All), the festival's main venues are situated in Sabhal Mòr Ostaig, the Gaelic college in the south of Skye, and this year takes live events to more stages across Skye and Lochalsh.

An exciting crime at the castle will be under investigation when a trio of award-winning Scottish crime writers – Michael J Malone, Caro Ramsay and Douglas Skelton – descend on the ancestral home of Clan Donald, Armadale Castle, to give workshops and talks on their craft.
 
With its roots planted in Scottish traditional music, the 2018 festival includes performances by the Adam Sutherland Band, the Alastair McCulloch Trio, Charlie McKerron, Mary Ann Kennedy, Fergie Macdonald, Kaela Rowan, the Routes Quartet and Saltfish Forty.
