About this piece

2019 – Moffat – Scotland, UK

Why does the burly Scotsman have a floral scarf over his head on this warm July evening?  He has been on the yearly torchlight parade through the streets of Moffat before, and its final destination is into the woods to set light to a giant celebration bonfire.  And lurking in these these woods is the much revered sottish flesh eating monster, “Midges”.

It just so happened that I had an overnight stay at Moffat on the same evening of the Gala Day.  It was a plesure to be able to join in with the locals on this very Scottish festival before heading further North.
