Ninth annual Darts Festival ready to take aim

Nine years ago, Alex Mackay and Andy Dowie decided to have a Western Isles Darts Festival in Stornoway’s Sea Angling Club hoping to get mainland players to come to the Island and to help improve the local darts scene.

Now nine years later the curtain is about to be raised on the ninth Western Isles Darts Festival starting on Monday 28th January until Saturday 2nd February and it’s set to be the biggest event yet.
