Hundreds attend Seashore Festival in Lochalsh.

Seashore Festival
Part of the Seashore Festival Event in Kyle Hall

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.

Organised by 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,
  • seaweed tutorials and cookery demonstrations in Balmacara Square, and
  • rounded off with an evening cruise and more delicious seafood in Plockton.

The entire 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.
