Festivals and Events

The Oban area hosts a plethora of exciting festivals and events during the year so no matter when you visit, you are likely to catch the fun!

From the iconic Highland Games and world renowned Highlands and Islands Music and Dance Festival to West Highland Yachting Week, Oban Winter Festival and the Festival of the Sea, there is something to celebrate all year round.

Even the wee islands off Oban’s coast get in on the act, with events such as Coll & The CosmosEasdale RIB Rendezvous, the International Stone Skimming Championships and the Taproot Festival of Literature and Music on Lismore.

Local producers’ markets, Charities Day, traditional ceilidhs, live music, food and drink festivals and fireworks round out Lorn’s busy event calendar.
