Forecasters had predicted that today (Friday July 31) would be scorching hot across the UK, but this is most definitely not the case in Barvas, where the Westside Show is currently being held. 

Driving rain and swirling wind are greeting those hardy enough to attend the Show, held on Barvas Machair. 

 

This year's Show was opened by Hugh Blackwood, of Auldhouseburn Pedigree Blackface Sheep.
