View from the Volunteer Centre, Stornoway office window of the Heb Celt tent now set up and getting ready for all the excited visitors expected this week. This wee guy is ready wearing his Heb Celt hoody and looking forward to visiting all the way from Uist to hear Skippinish!!

Fingers crossed the weather will be nice, our town is getting busy and looking beautiful with the lovely plants, bunting and window displays helping all get into the festival spirit.

Hope all have a great week and we look forward to speaking to the many visitors that will be popping into the office throughout the week
