John Morrison, Chief Executive of An Comunn Gàidhealach said: “What a fantastic year it’s been for the Royal National Mòd in Lochaber. To welcome the highest number of participants in a decade is special, and shows the strength and importance of Gaelic Culture. The level of competition has been outstanding.  I’m delighted to welcomed so many new faces amongst the familiar ones this year, and we hope they’ll be returning to join us in Dunoon next year. It’s encouraging to see so many young entrants and winners this year, and the quality of competition has been magnificent.

"I’d like to extend our gratitude to everyone involved in running this year’s Mòd, and particularly to the local organising committee and all of our volunteers and sponsors. Planning is already under way for Mòd 2018 in Dunoon and we look forward to seeing everyone there.”
