In line with the theme of Homecoming Scotland we are inviting visitors from far and near to explore their roots and enjoy an exciting programme combining traditional boat building and restoration, the music of the sea and the great traditions of knitting.

The first two days of the Festival will be devoted to presentations and demonstrations by national and international experts in each subject. The second two days will follow the Festival's well established form of  non stop spectacle, music, good food, and things for all members of the family to do.

The programme will demonstrate the fascinating international links in all three areas and underline the significant Scottish influence across the centuries.

All are welcome but we wish to extend a special 'haste ye home' to Scots, however distant their roots!

Thanks to our sponsors







The Rt Hon The Earl of Seafield and
Mrs Clare Russell, Lord Lieutenant of Banffshire
