Bluebell Festival Inveraray

Bluebell Jail break

This well watched 7km race starts with a mass breakout from Inveraray Jail along the lochside to the Cross Green and into Inveraray Castle grounds. The first km and a half is on a tarmac surface through the estate grounds. After this the terrain is trail track the condition of which can be very variable depending on the weather. Expect lots of mud, bogs and very loose stones and you probably won't be disappointed! The course ascends fairly sharply to 248m the top of Dun Na Cuaiche where runners will go round the watchtower before descending to finish the race in front of Inveraray Castle.

There are 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes in the following categories M/F Senior, V40, V50 plus, first local finisher and first Jogscotland finisher. There are also junior races of 2.5m (12-15yrs) and 1.9m (6-11). Click the button below for a competitors entry form.


Loch Fyne Food Fair

A two day feast of West Coast food, wine, ale and entertainment. It is held in the fields next to the Loch Fyne Oyster Bar between 11:00-18:00hrs. Free admission but a small charge for parking which is donated to a good cause. Last years stalls included Food from Argyll producers, Winston Churchill Venison, Crystals Shortbread and Home Ground Coffee. The food tent featured other select Scottish producers such as Great Glen Game, Isabellas Preserves, Caramiche Chocolates and Spencerfield spirits. To wash everything down, visitors sampled local ales supplied by Fyne Ales and an array of specially selected wines from Europe and beyond.

There is food and cooking demonstrations over the two days and live music. There is also children entertainments to keep the whole family happy for the weekend.
