Hundreds attend Seashore Festival in Lochalsh.
Issued by National Trust for Scotland Balmacara Estate
Wet and windy
weather confined much of the Lochalsh Seashore Festival to the calm interior of
Kyle Hall last weekend (Saturday 16 May).
A variety of
stalls and activities allowed over two hundred visitors to explore a vast range
of marine themes - with storytelling, live music, underwater film footage,
displays, crafting and delicious seafood all on hand.
a partnership between the National Trust for Scotland’s Balmacara Estate and
Kyle & Lochalsh Community Trust, the event included:
- a low tide
shoreline ramble at the Plock,
- open doors
at the Eilean Ban Trust,
tutorials and cookery demonstrations in Balmacara Square, and
off with an evening cruise and more delicious seafood in Plockton.
Festival was funded by the Highland Seashore Project – a three year initiative
funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Scottish Natural Heritage, The Highland
Council and the Crown Estate.
