The Festival was a huge success, thanks to the support of the sponsors including Hebridean Air Services, Colonsay Estate and CalMac, and the services of all our experts, artists and guides, and in particular sue to the sterling efforts of Sarah Hobhouse. The text of a proper appreciation of the splendid three week long programme of events has gone missing in the ether, so it is hoped that a few photographs in this issue will speak for themselves. Next year’s festival is already being planned and will be even more unmissable, if that be possible. See
