Beinn Lee…playing at Carinish Hall

Carinish Hall in North Uist is planning the first of a monthly series of Pre-Loved Markets for Saturday November 12.

The second-hand goods sale promises lots of pre-loved bargains. The doors open at 11 am. 

Tables at the event have already sold out. But the hall is already planning another sale in December.

As well as bargains, there will also be hot drinks, filled rolls, and treats from Wee Cottage Kitchen and Sweet Boutique on sale.

Donations are being sought for the bottle stall at the upcoming Christmas Table Top Sale at Hosta Hall on Friday November 18.

The sale, organised by North Uist Agricultural Show, raises funds for the North Uist children’s Christmas Party.

Bottle donations can be dropped off at the Bayhead Shop and the Sollas Co-op.

Top Uist band Beinn Lee and Taigh Chearsabhagh's musician-in-residence Duncan Macleod are the acts lined up for the free Cèilidh Foghair in Carinish Hall on Friday November 25.

The ceilidh dance will also have food, a licensed bar, tea and coffee, and home baking “inspired by local Gaelic stories.” 

Organised by the Uist Dandelion creative programme, the event is ticketed, so you have to reserve a place via
