The Oban Times - - Leisure -

THE MU­SIC, wildlife, cul­ture and food of south west Lochaber will be cel­e­brated next month, with the re­turn of the Ard­na­mur­chan At Home fes­ti­val.

The four- day event, from Septem­ber 23, fea­tures en­ter­tain­ment vary­ing from com­edy, ceilidhs and lo­cally-sourced food and drink.

School pupils on the penin­sula are also get­ting in on the act, as the doors of Ardgour, Stron­tian and Achar­a­cle pri­maries will be open to show off the work of the chil­dren.

Su­san Mac­Don­ald, of or­gan­is­ers, Ard­na­mur­chan tourist as­so­ci­a­tion, said: ‘The fes­ti­val is a show­case for ev­ery­thing we love about the area.

‘ We wanted to re­mind lo­cals of all the great stuff that’s on their doorstep, while let­ting visi­tors to the area see what it means to be ‘at home’ in Ard­na­mur­chan.

Fes­ti­val events will be held all over the penin­sula, from Ardgour in the east to Kil­choan in the west.

Ms Mac­Don­ald added: ‘ We want to let peo­ple see the di­ver­sity of the area.

‘By host­ing the events in a va­ri­ety of venues such as schools, cafes, ho­tels, the art gallery and the new dis­tillery, as well as the great out­doors, we think we’re do­ing just that.’
