We go to many but this is our favorite. Make a weekend of it and bring money for shopping and beer! Talk to EVERYONE, you won't find an unhappy person here....everyone is a new friend waiting to be found!! There is music for every type but Albanach should not be missed.the Scottish Cottage is THE place for lunch and dinner (oh the peat!) and County Argyle has Celtic and antique jewelry at every price point! This festival is one you don't want to miss!!
Had a great time!
We went as a family and had a great time. We did not buy the VIP passes and never felt like we were missing out on anything. Everyone we talked with was very nice and excited to share information and and answer any questions. We will be attending more games in the future.
Our First Time!
This was our first time attending the Festival. We recently moved to Jacksonville from Atlanta and the low cost admission, free shuttle to and from was a bonus! Great entertainment watching the Highland athletes, Musicians, personal favorite Emish, vendors and food! We will be back next year! May even volunteer for a day!
