The Queen's Baton Relay is in Scotland from 22-26 August 2017! Various events are planned as the Baton tours the country on its journey around the Commonwealth to the Gold Coast Games in April 2018 in Australia.
The baton, with a team of twelve accompanying it, arrived yesterday on the morning plane and made its way to Bowmore Primary School to meet pupils from all the primary schools. It then made its way, via Bowmore Distillery, to the Square, in glorious weather conditions, allowing an opportunity for the public to see and photograph the baton. After a trip to ICCI, the baton made its way back to the plane in the early afternoon to continue its journey through Scotland and other parts of the world.
Below a very nice video which was shot during the festivities yesterday.
