FOR the third time in three years, Wiston Lodge, on the outskirts of Biggar, will be ‘on fire’ in May –but there’s no need to dial 999.

There’s no mad arsonist heading for the charity-run lodge in the heart of the Upperward Hills.

Instead, some of Scotland’s finest singers, artists, writers and thinkers will be gathering for the third annual Carrying the Fire Festival, being held between May 16 and May 18.
