Festival Description

The Hebridean Celtic Festival is an annual celebration that is considered Scotland’s ‘Event of the Year’! Find out why people travel from the ends of the earth to be here. Four days of fabulous music in one of the most unique settings in the world. Spectacular supershows, intimate concerts and a variety of events for all the family held in various venues from the 5000 capacity big top to community halls, even outdoor if we’re lucky. You’ll find something for all the family.

And what an amazing backdrop to hold a festival, boasting some of the best beaches in the world, unspoilt scenery, wild mountains and an embarrassment of historical monuments, not to mention the hugely welcoming community.
