Events in Wester Ross

If you have local events you would like us to list, please get in touch.

From 2017 -  we had the Loch Ewe WW11 Festival - an exciting weekend of music, dancing, re-enactment, film shows, 1940s makeovers, and more. The star attraction was undoubtedly a flypast on both days from a Spitfire, which provided a 20 minute display each day, looping up and around Loch Ewe. But...errr...of course, if you are reading this now, you have probably missed it!

So - Let's look at 2020!

Want some action and the outdoors? How about the Torridon Mountain and Sea Festival? This is now a regular event with outdoor pursuits, fine foods and real ales, music, and entertainment on offer.  For details on the what - who - where - when,  look at the TM&SF website or facebook page! Fantastic entertainment, superb scenery!

Here are some links to the various webpages, which we'll update with accurate dates and information as this becomes available. mean time, note that most annual events happen on approximately the same weekend each year..........

There's also an event calendar with all the information on when, where, and how much, and a facebook page called "Wester Ross Events".

Regular events throughout the Year?

Series of Lectures and Exhibitions at Gairloch Museum, covering several aspects of the area's many natural attractions. There are regular workshops on several exhibitions by artists, exhibitions  in co-operation with groups and individuals in the area, and many other regular events and exhibitions. Full details of all of these are on the Gairloch Heritage Museum's website.

 

Open seven days a week between May until October , the Russian Arctic Convoy Museum project will be running an exhibition at their centre in Aultbea. Opening times are 9.30am - 4.30pm, with last admission at 4pm. There's ship and aircraft models, uniforms, artefacts, photos, maps, and so much more - this is located on the main A832 road at Aultbea. Loch Ewe was one of the key assembly points for convoys making the harsh crossing to Russia during the war. A very worthwhile project indeed, so why not call in and support them?
