Hundreds of festive gift-hunters headed to the Mount Stuart Christmas fair on Sunday for one of the highlights of the island’s Yuletide calendar.

In addition to a wide variety of stalls selling arts, crafts and delicious foodstuffs, performances from the Bute Community Schools’ Choir and from the Ballianlay Choir added music to the mixture of the day.

A particular highlight was the second annual Santa Dash around the Mount Stuart grounds, organised by the local Calum’s Cabin charity and featuring numerous grown-ups in Santa costumes - and also lots of youngsters, wearing reindeer antlers, who left the adult ‘dashers’ trailing in their wake!
