People keen to see some of Scotland’s top handlers will flock to Kintyre Sheepdog Trials Association’s competition today.

Clochkeil Farm will host the annual trials this year, from 8am until 5pm. Entry is free and all visitors are welcome.

Those with a nose for things a bit more delicate should enjoy Clachan Art Show, which runs from today (Friday) until Sunday, in the village hall.

The exhibit will be open from 10am until 6pm today and tomorrow, and from 11am until 5pm on Sunday.

On Saturday morning, St Kieran’s R.C. church will be serving refreshments in the Red Cross Hall, Kirk Street, from 10am until 12 noon. There will be a raffle, bottle stall and home baking for sale.

At night, the drive is on to raise funds for Campbeltown Brass, who will hold a car treasure hunt, followed by a barbecue at 6pm.

Registration is from 5.45pm at the Guide Hall on Kinloch Road. It is £10 per car and there will be various prizes for the winners.

Golfing greats can test their skills on Sunday at a putting competition at Grammar Lodge from 1pm til 4pm. All proceeds from the event will go to the Campbeltown Christmas Lights Group.

And there is more to look forward to next weekend, when Keeping It Local in Burnbank Place will host an art exhibition from August 16-20, featuring young artists including Matthew Hales and Paul Russell. Entry is free, and people are welcome to go along and browse.
