Bandstand Beer and Music Festival
- 11 - 20th April 2014
Our annual Bandstand Beer Festival is now the largest independant beer festival in the Scottish Highlands.
Now in it's sixth year, the festival attracts visitors from all over the UK. Next year's festival takes place 11 - 20th April 2014. During the week, there will be over 100 Scottish and English ales and Real Ciders for you to try. We have already started planning the list of ales. We like to give our visitors something new to taste, so if you know of an excellent local micro brewery that you think deserves to be showcased - please let us know.
This year, we'll have plenty of memorable live music from talented musicians from all around Scotland. They'll be playing traditional Celtic and rock music.
Visitors wanting to stay a few days and make the most of the festival, should contact us early to book their accommodation. (There is a 10% discount on accommodation for CAMRA members)
