The Salen Show

The Salen Show is always held on the Thursday before the schools on Mull go back for the Autumn term. This year the day in question was a lovely bright sunny, cloudy day - a perfect day for the show. Not too hot for the animals and no midges to bother the humans.
The showground is a pretty field beside the road at Aros Bridge - the setting is perfect and incredibly photogenic with the shore just the other side of the road.
The organisers put in a huge amount of work behind the scenes before the show getting the field ready and on the day itself, and this year there was a good turnout and everyone seemed to have a grand day out!
Treshnish Farm has never shown any livestock at the Salen Show, but the stock judging for me is the heart of the show - that and the home produce tent of course!
This year the North West Mull Community Woodland were there along with other environmental groups like Mull Renewables represented by the Powerdown officer.
