I have just returned from The Hebridean Celtic Festival. This was held on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides. I left Edinburgh on Thursday afternoon and travelled up to Inverness with my boyfriend. We stayed in the city overnight and drove to Ullapool the next morning, where we caught the ferry to Lewis. The two and three quarter hour crossing to the island was very smooth. We saw some great bands on Friday and Saturday, the best of them being The Proclaimers. I actually spoke to one of the brothers in a local pub on the Friday night, he was really friendly. I couldn’t have had a better weekend; the weather was great, the music outstanding and the people amazingly friendly.
