Festivals in Scotland

Here is our listing of festivals in Scotland throughout the year including cultural, historical, musical and religious events.


The Insider Festival, Aviemore

The Insider Festival, Aviemore will be back in 2015 .

True to its name the Insider Festival is all about small, idiosyncratically-named stages tucked away in the woods of the Inshriach Estate. A small crowd and a high number of artists, makes this event a celebration of music, food and performance. A perfect choice for those who are uncomfortable with festival crowds.

Peebles Arts Festival

The only cross-platform multi-arts festival in the Borders. Some of the events include music by local performers, visual art representing the local area, author readings, newly-commissioned theatre performances, film, a crafts fair and tours with historical, humorous, musical, landscape and literary themes.

Fringe By The Sea, North Berwick

So where will you begin with this year’s Fringe By the Sea Festival in August in North Berwick? - the best of British blues music? Fringe First winners? Laugh ‘til you wheeze? American beauties? Maybe it will be the authors that catch your eye – or some of the wildlife and history events celebrating this Year of Natural Scotland. By concentrating our efforts on the two Spiegeltents at North Berwick harbour – we are creating a festival village that will be exciting, vibrant and FUN!
