An Lanntair arts centre in Stornoway hosted a successful day of shinty events last Thursday.

Through the day, the ‘Snow in the Sahara’ exhibit detailed the history of shinty in Lewis and Harris, whilst at night the Shinty Heroes concert with Hugh Dan Maclennan, Gary Innes, the Henderson brothers, Ceitlin Smith and Duncan MacGillvary was a poignant yet entertaining look at shinty’s part in the Great War.

The concert was closed by Lewis’ very own shinty hero Iain “Diablo” Sinclair singing one of his own compositions.
