Kicking-off with a traditional music concert on Friday 7th July, the Scottish Traditional Boat Festival, now in its 13th year, takes on a new international flavour. Norwegian Shanty group Slogmaakane, on their first trip to Scotland, will perform at the Friday night showcase along with local talent, providing a non-stop programme of music, song and dance. Achieving spectacular growth over recent years the Scottish Traditional Boat Festival boasts the largest collection of traditional sailing boats in Scotland. This year there will be over 100 craft including the magnificent Reaper, the oldest existing example of a fifie herring drifer built in 1901. Expect a packed programme throughout the weekend of over forty craft demonstrations, 22 food exhibitors of gorgeous local produce at the food fair and many activities for children including a demonstration from the British Divers Marine Life Rescue - who hit the headline recently with their efforts to save the Thames whale.
