As residents of the Clyde Coast, we have ventured to the local islands many times including Cumbrae but I am ashamed to say that this was our first time visiting the Millport Illuminations. We were therefore delighted that Clyde Cruises invited us on a cruise organised specially for the event.
The Strathspey Railway Company operates heritage railway services on nearly 10 miles of the former Highland and BR line from Aviemore to Broomhill in the scenic heart of the Scottish Highlands.
On Saturday the 27th of August, we attended the first day of the Viking festival in Largs. The festival marks the anniversary of the famous failed Viking Invasion attempt on the town in 1263. A replica Viking Village has been built for the duration of the festival and you can experience the sights And smells of Viking life at the time. They even have an archery section at the back where you can practice your skills with a bow and arrow. We visited the village and have uploaded some of the images to the events section in our Gallery.
