Sunshine pulls the crowds at 69th Dunvegan Show

UNEXPECTED summer sunshine on Saturday had visitors flocking to the 69th Dunvegan Show.

The event was once again organised by members of Duirinish and Bracadale Agricultural Association who reported gate entries for 2017 were up on previous years and a record number of show entries, particularly in the sheep section.

In the livestock section, judge Margaret MacDonald had the unenviable task of choosing the Champion of Champions. The coveted title, the Margaret Mackinnon Memorial Cup, was won by Angus Beaton of Gesto with a two crop Cheviot ewe. Reserve overall was handed to Robert MacDonald, of Uiginish, for his Charolais cross stot calf.

Competitions in home produce, horticulture, handicrafts, fleeces and children’s sections were judged throughout the event with trophies and prizes handed out at the end of the day in the show tent.
