The cowboys may have come and gone after another successful Country Music Festival but there is another big event still to come on the island calendar.

The September Illuminations weekend has been running in Millport for over 80 years including a range of fun family events including a sandcastle competition, a ghost walk, and fireworks all lined up for this year - and much more.

It takes place over the weekend of 27-29th September.

The Ghost Walk starts at the Royal George at 7pm on the 27th.
