An Amazing Tour Diary - Highlands and Islands Enthusiasm was the hallmark of the week long BHS Scotland Highlands and Islands Tour mid-October which comprised miles by car and four ferry crossings and the two flights to reach the more remote areas.

It was a daunting ferry flight drive dash from the Hebrides to the Northern Isles, including Caithness.
Skye first where fantastic area rep Sam Nicolson recommended accommodation, booked the venue and promoted this event; after checking into the guesthouse a visit to Portree Stables was in order to enjoy one of their lessons in action and a clipping session that was being carried out during the school holidays.
Dinner followed by an evening talk on the work of the BHS was a great success, before Derek delivered a very informative talk on a range of subjects relevant to horse owners on the Isle of Skye with lots of questions and discussion.
Three new members joined up on the evening. We took the ferry from Uig to Tarbert on the Tuesday morning and then followed a lovely scenic route to Stornoway where the wind was starting to pick up. We were greeted by friendly volunteers at their amazing Lochside Arena for a valuable veterinary session with Derek, offering expertise on a variety of topics.
We had the opportunity to meet up with a couple of the volunteers prior to the evening lecture, including the familiar Paul Phillips. Despite the horrendous weather on Tuesday evening we had a good turn out for our BHS lecture where four new members joined up on the evening.
We are looking forward to holding more events at Lochside in the future, and we loved the Stornoway hospitality. Wednesday morning was the 7am ferry to Ullapool then Wick with a pre-arranged meeting with NW to raise road safety concerns concerns on behalf of local members, where the route managers agreed to put dead slow fliers in each NW application pack — so good work there!
