Eleanor, Duchess of Argyll, Best Of The West Festival founder and chairperson, said: “Whether you’re an aspiring whisky drinker or a more experienced 'drammer', this year’s Loch Fyne whisky marquee offers something for everyone. Come along and speak to the professionals who put the stuff together and taste for yourself the quality of the huge range of whiskies from the west coast of Scotland.”

And the whisky marquee is complemented once again by a food tent jam-packed with a host of delicious delicacies from Argyllshire while music headliners at the festival include: Eddi Reader, Skerryvore, Skipinnish, Blazin' Fiddles, Hunter and the Bear and Tide Lines.

Inveraray Castle, the jewel in the West Highland’s crown, provides a stunning venue for the event, which is fully under cover. The imposing, turreted castle, sits on the edge of Loch Fyne surrounded by the breath-taking scenery of the west coast. The Festival will take place in the grounds of the castle with the castle itself, hills and loch as a backdrop.
