Video - Stornoway gets into the Carnival spirit

It was Carnival time in Stornoway town centre on Saturday afternoon (August 9th) and thousands lined the town’s main street from the Cabarfeidh Hotel to South Beach to see the sights at this year’s event.

As always there was lots of imagination and fun in the design of the floats, with dancing vikings, a declaration for Point independence and the Lewis Chessmen all putting in an appearance.
