It has been a packed week of events here in the islands with sports, musical and entertainment events taking place from the Butt to Barra.

Saturday saw the large scale Motorshow take place at the Creed Park followed by a Drag Race at Stornoway Airport. (page 30).

With the weather offering some quite un-summer like conditions, it was a hard slog for those taking on the Benbecula Half Marathon and Fast Track and also on Lewis the annual Leanne Fund 5k (page 40)was still a great success despite the challenging weather!

The end of last week saw the close of the Lewis Mod with hundreds of youngsters displaying their talents in the various competitions (page 14 and 15) and we also have another page of pictures from Mod Uibhist from the week before (page 13).
