CowalFest dates announced

The organisers of this year’s Cowal-based walking and outdoor festival have announced it will run from Friday 6th October to Sunday 15th October. The Festival will feature more than thirty walks graded from gentle strolls to challenging day trails.

CowalFest organisers say that the walks, which are facilitated by knowledgeable volunteers and take place amid the stunning scenery, are a perfect introduction to this often-overlooked area of Scotland.

This year’s CowalFest will include walks aimed at those interested in wildlife or photography, families will be well catered for and evening events will include a ceilidh. A special feature this year will be walks, talks and entertainment celebrating the world-famous entertainer, Harry Lauder and his connections with Cowal.

The full programme will be available on the CowalFest website from late June. In the meantime if you want to check out the amazing scenery in this accessible part of Argyll, Walkhighlands has a large selection of walks in the Cowal area including the Cowal Way, a 47 mile multi-day walk taking in the best the area has to offer.
