Plans are in the making for a gala day to celebrate the reopening of Seil Island Hall.

Volunteers were needed to help run children’s activities and a cafe at the hall on Saturday August 28 to celebrate its doors opening once again after they were shut by the Covid panedemic.

The island’s playgroup is teaming up with the Royal British Legion Scotland’s Easdale Branch who are also hosting a special event that day with the help of piper DJ MacDougall.

DJ will be piping four miles from the Bridge Over The Atlantic all the way down to the seafront at Ellenabeich wile playing the pipes to raise funds for Armed Forces charities supporting both veterans and serving personnel and their families.

On the same day but miles away in Callander, other islanders Willie Munro, Tracy White from Seil and Alison Young from nearby Luing are taking part in the 2021 Rob Roy Mighty Hike in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

The route will take them on foot from Callander to Killin with a number of pit stops on the way. The trio hope to raise £750.
