Good luck from the Stornoway Gazette to all the competitors in today’s Royal National Mod big two competitions: The Traditional Final and the Gold Medal, but all at the Gazette are thinking of Carloway’s Isabel Macleod after she qualified for the finals of both.

The Gold Medal Final begins at 10:30am in the Queen’s Hall, Dunoon, with the Traditional Final taking place in the same venue tonight at 7:30pm.Another Lewis success yesterday (Wednesday) was Kirsty Watt, who won the George Clavey Memorial Quaich and took first place in the traditional singing learners section. Kirsty’s success comes six years after big sister Catriona won the same trophy.

Stay tuned to the Stornoway Gazette website for updates.
