The Baird of Bute Society invite you to join their third annual 'Baird of Bute Celebration' taking place on Saturday, September 22nd. 2012

The Strip was dedicated two years ago to the memory of Andrew Baird – a son of Bute - who achieved ”The First All-Scottish heavier-than-air powered flight” in September 1910 on the sands of Bute’s Ettrick Bay. In his memory, there is to be an annual celebration at the airfield and at Ettrick Bay. You are invited to attend this festival whether you come by road or air. There will be live music, presentations and BBQ.
