Cusidh Caol Muile took best puppy with her brother Cusidh Righ Innse Gall winning best puppy dog. Drawing Down the Moon (Banrigh) was second in Open Bitch. As judged by Mrs Denise Courtney.

Show Report for Cuisdh Caol Muile: "I just loved this baby of 8 mths. She has everything for me. Excellent bone & substance, very feminine head, dark eye with aloof expression. Very shapley fore & aft which showed on the move. A little shy to be looked at but this will go with maturity, must have a glowing future."
