FESTIVAL FEVER - Culture, music, food and so much more!

The west coast islands and peninsulas are home to a range of fantastic festivals and events throughout the year, particularly during the summer months. Most are family friendly and many are award winning, attracting big names in the music industry as well as promoting up and coming artists.

To enjoy a real taste of the vibrant and thriving local culture, music and food of the west coast, check out Hebridean Celtic, Tiree Music Festival, Iona Music Festival, Best of the West, Mull of Kintyre Festival and Isle of Bute Jazz Festival. From island half marathons, food, whisky, arts and crafts, film, walking, windsurfing, books, wildlife, boating and yachting festivals, from Cumbrae to Lewis, there's plenty going on. Find out more about festivals on the west coast on our Events pages.

Many of these events are ticketed and extremely popular so book your festival tickets in advance and your ferry tickets as soon as possible too. Festival tickets can be booked directly with the organisers.
