With no rally to report, the local on-island, annual subscription-based, monthly magazine 'Round & About' had a couple of pages to fill and by goad, fill them they have. They commissioned (no cash involved, just threats and blackmail!) an article from a big pal of mine looking back on the history and background of the event plus some tales which should stir the old memory box. Apparently the big lad retired to the treehouse one evening with a large glass of Lagavullin and a six pack of Tunnock's Caramel Wafers. He must have been awfy busy, tap, tap, tapping away - the neighbours thought a flock of woodpeckers had moved in.
The mag is due to be published on 31st October and you can get more information on the website. The website also has a sample copy of a past magazine so you can have a look. Also worth noting, the Round & About website lists holiday B&B and self-catering accommodation in the area, so keep a note of the address:
