Mrs Poshington
Mrs Poshington
Mrs Poshington is one of the best dressed Tatties in Minginish this summer. She sits near the car park below Carbost war memorial, giving a wave to passers by, many of whom are on their way to visit the nearby Talisker whisky distillery.
Minginish Tattie Bogal
Tattie Bogal is the Minginish Scarecrow Festival - a community event which gained some funding from Awards for All. A trail of ingenious Tatties is delighting visitors to the Minginish district of Skye this summer, as dozens of them are displayed outside homes and businesses along the roadside from Drynoch through Carbost and Portnalong. Every one has to be wearing some tartan. The tatties include a doctor (outside Carbost Medical Centre) a police officer (hiding behind a speed limit sign) a peg-legged pirate (outside the Old Inn Pub) and many others. This photo collection records just a few of the Tattie Bogal characters that I found particularly alluring.
