With the holiday season in full swing, August was a quieter month for us and visits. However, around 30,000 visitors attended The Black Isle Show, near Muir of Ord on the 3rd of August. Dingwall and District Beekeepers and their live honeybees were a fantastic draw, whether old or young everyone was delighted to meet the queen!

We then hosted our Scottish National Honey Show at the Flower and Food Festival in Dundee. We were delighted to see so many entrants into the competition classes, and over the moon when we received hundreds of posters from the Primary 4 to Primary 7 pupils of Eastern Primary School in Dundee. Boy did they brighten up our tent! It was wonderful to see pupils winning first, second and third prizes! A big thank you to everyone who entered and a special thanks to Rhona and Hilary for organising all these posters!

It’s back to school with a bang for us in September and we can’t wait to meet many new bee friends across Scotland.
