Yesterday, August 9, saw the 166th edition of the Islay Show, organised by the Islay, Jura and Colonsay Agricultural Association. Unlike many previous editions the weather was great, a "first time without wellies" according to an email I received from someone this morning. It was a fabulous day, hot & sunny, Islay looking at its best. As it is an Agricultural show it had Cattle, Horses, Sheep, Ponies, Dogs and Flowers as well as a large variety of trade stands. Also present was the Islay Pipe Band, Ella Edgar's Highland Dancers, Islay & Jura Dog Management Team Display, Classic Cars and Tractors and many others. Below are a few pictures, courtesy Ileach Newspaper of the best visited event of the year on Islay.
