Last weekend something small but hugely significant happened. The first Solas Festival took place at Wiston near Biggar.
Festivals come and go, but this one is, I think, the one that Scotland has been waiting for. A place to share ideas, to hear deep thoughts, to sing a new song and hear a different melody.
Solas is inspired by Greenbelt but has a very Scottish flavour, both in the words and songs.
Scotland needs a space like this. If you missed it this time then make sure you get there next year. It could just be what you’ve been looking for.
