Annual Ardnamurchan Mòd hits the high notes

MORE than 300 people – the largest number of entries for many years – competed in the annual Mòd Aird nam Murchan last Friday.

The Mòd was once again held in Ardnamurchan High School, with competitors coming from the peninsula’s five primary schools.

Convener Fiona MacLean said: ‘We had a good number of choirs and five action songs, which was fantastic.

‘That is a lot for us. Having more than 300 people competing is more than usual for us.

‘Having the national Mòd coming to Fort William this year has given us an edge and we hope first prize-winners will go on to compete in the Mòd. The Mòd supports our five primary schools and gives the four non-Gaelic-medium schools a chance to take part in Gaelic competitively.

‘The high school has been so generous in having us because we turn the place upside down.

‘We can’t thank them enough.’

Francis MacDonald from Ardnamurchan High School won first in violin solo.
