Walk­ing and Out­door Fes­ti­val

The Oban Times - - Leisure -

ES­TAB­LISHED over ten years ago, Cowalfest is a ten- day walk­ing and out­door event which gives an op­por­tu­nity to ex­plore this scenic area, en­joy some of its history, her­itage and wildlife - in­clud­ing pine martens and red squir­rels – and with plenty of pho­to­graphic op­por­tu­ni­ties.

Amidst hills, lochs, forestry and glens, events cater for all lev­els of abil­ity, from a guided walk through the beau­ti­ful Ben­more Gar­dens, to an as­cent of Ben Ruadh (664m) or daily trekking the Cowal Way in six sec­tions.

There are moun­tain bik­ing and run­ning ac­tiv­i­ties, as well as ca­noe­ing. Cul­tural events in­clude tour­ing coun­try houses, a book fes­ti­val, tra­di­tional mu­sic, a ceilidh and more.

Visit www.cowalfest.org to view the whole pro­gramme or book an event.

Ac­com­mo­da­tion is avail­able lo­cally. Links can be made through the web­site or by en­quir­ing at dunoon@ visits­cot­land. com.
