Linlithgow Loch was buzzing with activity this week as members of West Lothian Sailing Club welcomed their German counterparts from Regatta und Fahrtensegler Club Mohnesee.

The exchange has been running for six years, starting originally as a children’s event but now involving entire families.

Activities for the week included sailing, windsurfing and kayaking on the Loch, mountain biking and gorge walking, a trip to the beach, sight-seeing and even a mini Highland Games.

Linlithgow Round Table funded a Scottish evening, which comprised a traditional meal followed by dancing at the Scotch Hop. This year 11 German children and 12 German parents and grandparents visited with 15 local children joining in.

The exchange committee would like to thank the people of Linlithgow who have been so supportive with fundraising activities and the Rotary Club of Linlithgow Grange for its support.
