Events in Wester Ross

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

The BIG news for 2017 so far was the Loch Ewe WW11 Festival - This was an exciting weekend of music, dancing, re-enactment, film shows, 1940s makeovers, and much 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!
