‘Four day festival set against the unique backdrop of the the Hebrides. Organised by the HCF Trust, this first festival was held in 1996 and now regularly attracts attendances of 14,000 over its four day run. Wild, but not a bit woolly, this festival has built up a fabulously loyal audience locally and from across the world, many of whom have Hebridean ties, many of whom just love coming here and joining in the great party. The festival is a not for profit event run by the community for the community, supported by local and national funding agencies, the goodwill of local businesses and community, and the many volunteers who give of their free time to make it happen.’ Held Mid July.
