Is the transport different for the festival time then? Apart from over to West side we have at least 2 more buses after 8pm and although the other bus company dosn't run after that time Graham's mini bus still runs out to new valley (past the camp site for any staying there) and the bus that comes this way to portnaguran goes around melbost at least a couple of times after 8pm. Just ask for a bus timetable from the bus station when you get here and if theres no bus then the taxi's are very good.

. Festivals - yes please. We have just had a bash over the weekend. On Saturday there was an event afternoon / evening festival held in the grounds of Torosay Castle here on Mull. Capercaillie, Kila, Adimh, Sheamus Begley and friends, Aidan O'Rourke also with friends, loads of things going on as well as various choirs and the pipe band. A big barbeque, local ales, stalls etc. It was part of Feill Chaluim Chille running from 8th to 10th June around Argyll. I was down at the event on Iona on Friday - again perfect weather and great fun with a lot of visitors of all ages and performers from The Isle of Man and Ireland. We don't get this sort of big bash so people don't know what to expect, but for those who attended I would think it was a great day out. More please.

In answer to Tricia: Stornoway is only a small town, and the majority of festival-goers stay in the town itself. Most of it is within about 20 minutes' walking distance of the centre.
