Barra festival

Postby Rob Allanson » Tue Jan 27, 2009 5:07 pm

In September, 2009., the beautiful island of Barra is hosting the first ever ‘Whisky Galore

Festival’.

As part of Homecoming Scotland 2009 celebrations, this iconic venture will take place on the

island where Whisky Galore was born. Launching in Kismul Castle, an exciting weekend is

planned. Take part in the Whisky Chase, enjoy the movie (again!), visit our exhibition,

a seminar for serious buffs, Whisky tastings, Island tours, Re-enactments and much more.

On a social level, there will be special evening dinners’, ceilidhs, dances – something to suit

everyone! And for the golfer……… a golf tournament on Sunday – on the most westerly

golf course in the UK – with spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean. This will be followed

by a Presentation Dance. Also available will be traditional workshops, i.e. dancing, cookery,

Gaelic etc.
