Ayrshire, late in May called the festival of the winds or something like
that. Does anyone if there is one this yaer and is it worth going to if

The MKF calander (http://SportToday.org/) lists;

29-31                3rd Festival of Flight, Kelburn Castle, Scotland

Not much more detail than that I'm afraid.  May be worth checking out
the Kite Club of Scotland site to see if they have more details
(sorry, no URL to hand but I believe there is a link from the Kite
Society of Great Britian pages -
http://SportToday.org/).

Can't comment on the festival having never been.  It started the year
after I left Scotland.

Neil.

The Kite Club of Scotland (KCOS) can be found at
http://SportToday.org/

This festival has been going a few years now, every year getting bigger and
bigger. A very relaxed event, with camping around the flying site, nice
clean winds, and generally good weather. The Saturday and Sunday always seem
to be the best days, with things dying down a bit on the Monday.

The dates are May 29th to 31st.

Cheers, Jonathan
