Guy Fawkes Night, the celebration of a somewhat lost patriotism and rebellion against the government, was celebrated in Lochaber by the skies alight with flying lanterns and the earth vivified with fireworks and bonfires.
The fireworks display at the Banavie Rugby Club was a fantastic success with a great crowd that filled the bar inside and lined the streets outside all way down to the Moorings Hotel. At the end, the crowd dispersed out to the many mini firework displays and bonfires that were scattered around the area.
The clear skies made for a fantastic moonlit evening while a thick frost descended. The warmth of a Roy Bridge Bonfire (and perhaps a spot of Ben Nevis whisky) helped warm our chilly toes from the below zero temperatures. It’s a fantastic way to celebrate the coming of winter and, of course, to remember, remember the 5th of November…. not to mention homage to the genius behind V for Vendetta!
