The Hoolie Fun Run is set to get pulses racing with an event designed to provide something for everyone from Killearn and beyond. For the walkers and joggers the 5k route is ideal, but for the experienced and competitive runners the 10k is more of a challenge! Younger runners can participate in age-appropriate running events based in the park in the centre of the village, commencing with the inaugural Wee Hoolie for the Under 5s.

There will be medals and prizes for winners in all the usual categories (and maybe some unusual ones!) and a superb Killearn Hoolie Fun Run T-shirt for all entrants.

ENTER ONLINE See Fun Run section of website

The Fun Run Route

The 10k and 5k runs will begin at the top of the village where entrants will be officially piped out from the Black Bull Hotel to the starting line by the War Memorial. Keeping to the same beautiful route as 2010, the trail will take runners down the main street through Killearn and then past some stunning local scenery along the historic pipeline track. Following the hills to Dumgoyne the route returns via Ibert Road and the centre of the village to finish in the park. Follow us

HAPPY BIRTHDAY KILLEARN PRIMARY SCHOOL! During the Hoolie Week Killearn Primary School will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of moving down to the present site in the village and 10 years in the new building. There has been a school in Killearn since 1875 – the ‘Old Nursery School’ just off Main St. In May 1962, the school moved to the present site, to a new, modern, purpose built – but very soon too small – building! Soon a motley selection of huts and mobile buildings appeared to house the ever-expanding numbers of children in the village. Finally, after many years of waiting and lobbying by parents, the present refurbished and expanded school opened in 2002.

We hope to have an exhibition of photographs on display and an opportunity for former pupils to look at the old Registers and Log Books to find themselves and relive their memories, good or otherwise, of their time at Killearn Primary School. Primary 2/1 have also been working with Bill MacLeod on the media project involving some of our past pupils and we hope to be able to share some of this work with you, too. An invitation to see round the school and view the work being done by today’s pupils on the theme of ‘The Olympic Games’ is also extended. So keep Friday the15th free and join us to help mark this special occasion. Pat MacCowan Headteacher

To celebrate these momentous landmarks in the school’s history, we are planning to present a concert, reflecting the years since the move. Dig out your Hippie Gear, Beatle Cuts and Dallas Shoulder Pads and join us on

Why don’t you look back at the short films made about the Hoolie in 2010, by the then Primary 4 class?

HOOLIE YOUNG FUND RAISERS See what some of our young people are doing to help raise money

Hoolietastic Tuck Shop We are Harry and Angus and we are going to run the Hoolie Tuck Shop. There will be a pick ‘n’ mix selection, soft drinks and a variety of sweets to choose from all for a good price! So save up your money and let’s hope it’s sunny on the Killearn Hoolie Gala Day!

STRAWBERRIES & CREAM FOR INDIA Fraser Boland and I are selling strawberries and cream at a stall to raise money for a trip to the Indian Himalayas.

Three boys in a boat Look out for a group of young rowers who are planning to row 100km on the Glebe during Gala Day to raise funds for the Hoolie. Taking turns on a ‘Concept 2’ rowing machine, Ben Cartwright (15), Morgan Serpell (14) and Finlay Watson (14), will row in 10km sessions. They will be pushing their physical and mental ability to the limit and hope to set a record of endurance for the Under-16 age group. Donate on the day by dropping some coins into their bucket. The row starts at 6am and hopefully ending around 4pm in the afternoon.

Once there, we will help build a greenhouse, as the cold mountain climate doesn’t allow crops to grow in winter. This will help the locals to generate income and get food when poor weather causes the region to be cut off from the rest of the world. I have already run stalls at two car boot sales, started my first-ever job at Heron House and planned a sponsored fancy-dress ascent of Ben Nevis with Fraser.

We hope to serve you at our stall, and that you have a great Hoolie! Callum Watson 15

Edenmill Burgers

On the day of the Hoolie we will be cooking our own Aberdeen Angus steak burgers along with the famous ‘Hoolie Burger’: a blend of Aberdeen Angus rump steak, cumin and coriander. All our produce is from our own herd, and every burger is made at EdenMill and hand pressed by our own butchers, Jim and Neil. So why don’t you come along and try the best ‘Hoolie Burger’ in town!

Tom Lewis Tom Lewis from Monachyle Mhor Hotel will be giving cooking demonstrations during the day in the Main Marquee. Tom has been described as having the puppy-like enthusiasm of a young Jamie Oliver, the winning self-doubts of an early Nigella, and Ramsay’s sense of theatre.


Iain R. Spink’s Original Smokies From Arbroath

Iain R. Spinks ‘Original Smokies From Arbroath’ brings you an authentic replication of an ancient traditional craft. Iain is a fifth generation Arbroath Smokie maker employing the same methods that were used in the late 1800s. The fish are gutted at sea, washed, boxed and after auction at the fish market, they are ‘headed and sounded’ – sounding being the local name given to the thorough cleaning of the fish. They are dry salted, left for a few hours, then washed off, tied by the tail in ‘pairs’ and hung on special sticks. The fish are then smoked over a halved whisky cask, inside which a hardwood log fire of beech and oak has been lit. A dampened hessian cover allows the fire to breathe and maintain the required heat and humidity. The cooking time is usually a minimum of 30–40 minutes but only an experienced smokie maker knows exactly when they are ready! The freshly cooked smokies can be eaten on the spot (the best way!), or taken home to be enjoyed later. For information and recipes, visit

The Quack Commandos

The Quack Commandos Road Show is presented by the Scottish Sheepdog School based at Kinlochard in The Trossachs. This hilarious road show demonstrates the skill and speed of the Border Collie in action with a flock of Indian Runner ducks. The sheepdogs guide the ducks round a course of obstacles named after the four home nations. After putting the ducks round the course, our shepherds then invite teams of six members of the public onto the course to see if they can move the ducks as efficiently as the sheepdogs! The complete show lasts for approx 40 minutes and can be repeated. Children have the opportunity of meeting both dogs and ducks at the end of the show. The Quack Commandos are a self-

contained, mobile show – all we require is a suitable area of ground, preferably grassed, on which to perform. The show travels all over Scotland, including the islands, every year, performing at agricultural shows, game fairs, horse trials and gymkhanas, fêtes, gala days, and private and corporate functions.

Supporting act - Jill Jackson Jill Jackson is a singer songwriter from Paisley who has been described in the Nashville press as the ‘Scottish Songbird’. As a solo artist her sound is far removed from the music she made as the front-woman of rock band Speedway, with whom she scored two top ten hits in 2004. From rock chick to country girl, Jill has been gigging and recording as a solo artist since 2005.

Not only a talented performer, Jill is also known for her work as a songwriter and former Spice Girl Melanie C cut two of Jill’s songs for her fourth solo album in 2007. After spending the latter part of 2008 on a ‘50 States in 50 Days’ tour of the U.S., Jill returned to ‘T In The Park’ Festival in July 2009 – her first appearance as a solo artist. 24

Her profile continued to grow throughout 2009 into 2010 with a television appearance on STV’s TheHour in January to promote her 2010 Celtic Connections gig at Glasgow’s Classic Grand. Jill continued gigging throughout 2010, including an appearance at the Wickerman Festival in July of that year. In December 2010 Jill supported Runrig on their UK Winter tour, closely followed by a tour with Glasgow band Glasvegas in January 2011. In both cases Jill was playing to brand new audiences and didn’t take long to win them over with her rich vocals, engaging lyrics and a rare ability to connect with audiences everywhere. Jill’s work has also attracted the attention of the television and film industry, with her song ‘Just Not Myself’ being featured in the penultimate episode of BBC Three’s Lip Service in December 2010. Her current album is ‘Back to Zero’ released in 2011. We look forward to welcoming Jill to The Final Fling 2012

Main Band - Skerryvore



Soul-gripping songs, blazing bagpipes, fiddles and accordions, electrically fused with the urban sounds of rock and funk – Skerryvore are a multi-award-winning Scottish band creating a ‘nu-folk-rock’ fusion for the 21st century.


Skerryvore formed in 2005 on the Isle of Tiree in Scotland’s Inner Hebrides. From traditional roots the band have developed both in size and sound to create a Alec unique fusion of their traditional music and songs with the urban sounds of rock and funk. With their outstanding musicianship and the mesmirising voice of singer Alec Dalglish, Skerryvore have become an international sensation, performing worldwide in cities such as Chicago, Beijing, Shanghai, Amsterdam, Brussels, Milan, Prague, Dubai, as well as performances at premier festivals such as ‘T in the Park’.


The band’s highly anticipated 3rd album, ‘Skerryvore’ was released in July 2010, receiving sensational reviews from respected media and also awarded ‘Record of the Year’ at Scottish New Music Awards. This has seen the band achieve album sales of over 20,000 whilst also being awarded album of the month on the BBC Radio Scotland’s ‘Celtic Connections’ International Broadcast. “We may well have found a Runrig for the 21st Century” The Herald Follow us

Thank you for your support Killearn helps the Hoolie help community activity The 2010 Killearn Hoolie was a tremendous success: the programme proved really popular and all events were really well attended. As a result – and thanks to the support and generosity of local people and businesses – the Hoolie made a surplus and some of these funds have been used to assist other community activities in the village. Well done Killearn – you made all this possible: one of the groups aims is to promote community collaboration – and you helped the Hoolie help make this happen!
