Burns in Poolewe

Laide Caravan Park
The Bard and I visited lovely Wester Ross this weekend at the invitation of Wester Ross Burns Club. Poolewe village hall echoed to the Burns' story with club members, locals and some holiday makers attending.

Thanks to the ladies who put on a great spread at the interval and a BIG thanks to Ian and Jean to who set the whole thing up and accommodated us in their lovely house over the weekend.

We also managed to visit Inverewe gardens and take in the fantastic array of plant-life there.

hearty congratulations and a huge thank you from the Wester Ross Burns Club. Bryan Islip, a local artist/poet and one of our members, summed up the evening very well with one word - SUPERB!
It was an amazing presentation, particularly with you dresssed in the Bard's clobber on a sweltering evening in Poolewe. Your re-enaction of Tam O'Shanter was magnificent. I felt knackered just watching you.
Good luck with the show.
Ian MacMillan, President WRBC

Thnx Ian. It was a pleasure to bring the bard's tale to such a wonderful spot in Scotland.....and of course without your help it would not have happened!
