Lucky to visit Tuarach again, home of Les and Juan. Here at their home beside Loch Voil they run a sheep farm, while various wooden huts now welcome visitors, but once housed the LEGENDARY West Highland Animation studios. Maybe it will return for production some day... The sun completely ruined my packing by shining for all 4 days! Not depicted: tooth ceremony conducted in the ancient stone circle, summoning the (London based) tooth fairy, necessary after Lois's front tooth fell out.

13 acts playing 13 minutes each. Seems that I was on a 'draw one skip one' policy that eve.
Bob Drake and his 3 minute / 50 second pop wonders
Mandolin and fiddle from the No Frills Folk Band
Quite loud and quite fantastic 'Two Horns' (with their umpteen effects pedals)
Strayaway Child. The phantom tin whistler on the right also had a pretty wooden shruti box, but alas it wasn't mic'd up so we couldn't hear it being played. That's a new thing for The List then, to hear one being played live.
'Robin the Fog' : conjuring grand sounds from humble tape. Took me back to ye olde 'mending a cassette with sellotape' days.
