THE HERITAGE TENT

All visitors are warmly welcomed to the Heritage Tent to join the celebration of Argyll’s social and archaeological history, arts and crafts, publications, produce and wildlife. From ancient castles and standing stones to new scientific discoveries, you’ll find exhibitors passionate about their subject and happy to take time to research your roots or enjoy a tot of local whisky with you. If you have children, look out for the popular animal enclosure outside the Heritage Tent, where famously hardy Highland cattle and sheep are grazing.
