Sun Before Showers

The last thing the organisers of TMF want is a forecast of gale force winds.
Any gales are further north and west, so TMF has been spared.
Wednesday is the day of sun before the arrival of showers.

It is heart warming to have bright blue sky.
Scarinish old harbour always responds to blue skies.
In the sky above is Loganair’s Twin Otter approaching Tiree Airport.

Wednesday was day one of a temporary timetable for TMF.
The ferry arrived as normal, but instead of sailing on to Barra –
returned to Oban in order to provide Tiree with a second crossing.

Some wise festival goers had arrived earlier in the week
Nevertheless Wednesday’s savings were fully loaded.
The number of camper vans was notable.
As yet only a few foot passengers.

By Wednesday many of the trailers for the TMF site had already arrived.
Marquees, Mobile Stage, Police Mobile Unit, Catering Vehicles.
Security Fencing, Sound and Lighting Gear, Toilets.
Hosting such an event requires detailed organising
Especially on island 4 hours from the Mainland.

Coaches await the arrival of foot passengers for the festival.
Cyclists make their own way to the site.
This is the year of the camper-van!


It may be only 7:30pm in the evening but already the moon is out.
It promises to be a great sunset for those arriving for TMF.
Perhaps the last for a while!
