Both the Mull agricultural shows are held in early August. One at Bunessan and the other at the pretty show ground at Aros Bridge. The Bunessan Show this year is on Friday 3rd of August, and the Salen Show is on Thursday 11th of August. Our ‘local’ show is the Salen Show. It is an unmissable date in our family calendar!
We went to the Bunessan Show a year or so ago, and really enjoyed our day out. The Ross of Mull can be considered quite a drive from here, however the landscape you drive through to get there still astonishes me after 20 odd years. It is a lovely friendly show and well worth the journey!
Judging the Cheviots with the Salen Show shed in the background. Ardtornish Estate gifted it to the Mull and Morvern Agricultural Society a hundred years ago.
Farmer helped another exhibitor with his stock in the judging ring.
The poultry section is always in the old tin show shed, not a huge selection but some very fine ones!
Last year Daughter showed some of her Herdwick ewe hoggs in the Rare Breed section, she came home with rosettes too. She will be showing again this year.
