On Islay there is lots of different festivals like Halloween and new year. There is a famous poet called Robert Burns and we celebrate his life every year by saying poems that he wrote.  We also eat haggis to celebrate as well. Haggis is a traditional Scottish dish that is made up of sheep brains and sheep intestines- it tastes better than it sounds. There is also some more festivals like the Islay show. The Islay show is a festival where lots of farm animals are put into a competition and can win prizes such as money. There is also a big fair, it is for the kids, there is many thing you can do that are fun like going on the bouncy castle and there is a very high rock climbing thing you can go on. Thank you for reading hope you know a bit more about Islay.

I have tasted haggis when I was in Scotland, we went to the Highlands and it was nice. I am climbing Snowdon in a few weeks, which is a mountain in Wales. I hope to climb Ben Nevis soon – I have seen this mountain and it always has snow on top. Have you climbed Ben Nevis?
