We had great fun and lots of hot dogs and cake.
Can’t believe I can paint with watercolours great work shop.
What a great idea, been good for families.
I have been helping out with the café dressed as a scarecrow just good fun with my mates.
Fruit salad was a nice refreshing change for a snack bar.
The Tattie Bogal route is amazing we have just come for a coffee to finish off, people here are so talented.
Wow loved the sumo and my dad did it too. Got some sick photos.
The artist who done the workshop showed me dome great tips, I am going to try and start a new hobby because I enjoyed it so much.
I bought some Tattie Bogals there great to take home with me, thanks.
I want to make a real Tattie Bogal! I think it will be Rod Stewart with a big bum.
My kids loved the tunnel and chasing the scarecrow round and round – good family fun day.
Café was great with lots of young scarecrows helping out.
I got a t shirt and a mug luv them.
This has made our trip to Skye special with lots of memories and some great photos.
The fact of a water colour workshop for everyone was great, total concentration and great the no IT involved good call, good idea, great outcome for everyone.
OMG how old am I? I can remember Worzel Gummage, but watching the movie was weird, in a good way, thanks for some great memories.
