On Sunday 26th July the three churches in the are held their third Picnic & Praise event at Urquhart Castle on the shores of Loch Ness. Local singers and musicians, including a children's singing group, led those gathered in several worship songs at the start, before Alex MacDonald and his band took to the stage, performing songs he had written himself over the years. The local group rounded off the evening singing the blessing and two pipers played on the ramparts of the castle.
Despite black clouds threatening all day, the rain stayed away and a stiff breeze saw off any midgies! Those gathered were very glad of a hot cuppa in the castle cafe at the end of the evening. Many thanks to all who helped organise the event and to all those who came along on the night.
