Pics: Staffin Sheepdog Trials

TROTTERNISH designer Steve Taylor, who constructed the new Staffin Trust website, has another string to his bow.

Steve, who runs Cuillin Web Design from Kensaleyre, is also a talented photographer.

He has an impressive portfolio of images, particularly landscape scenes, built up over the years.

Back in July he visited the Staffin Sheepdog Trials in Elishadder and his collection of pictures from that gloriously sunny day are now on his Flickr site.

Around 300 spectators attended the trials which was won by Lewis man Murdo Murray and his dog Jim.

You can look at Steve’s pictures here:

About 50 dogs and their handlers from all over the UK and Ireland were among the competitors, which included a healthy entry from Skye.

More than £2,340 was raised for the Skye Cancer Care charity.

The Staffin Trust’s own Flickr account can be accessed by the icon at the top of each page or by clicking on this link:
