It’s getting to the time of year again when the pupils at the Plockton National Centre of Excellence in Traditional Music head of on their Summer Tour. If you get a chance to attend any of the concerts you won’t be disappointed. I am hoping to go over to the concert in Plockton on 20th June, we are so lucky to have this marvelous facility on our doorstep.
