THE 14TH ANNUAL WORLD FAMOUS 10 DAY COWALFEST BEGINS
Written by Archie Fergusson on 02/10/2015
For the Fourteenth year always starting this first week of October Cowalfest once again is attracting folk from all over the world to take part in a very unique 10 day festival with guided tours of some of the most spectacular landscapes in Scotland. This annual Walking and Outdoors Festival is one of the largest and most varied walking festivals in Scotland, with more than 60 walks led by expert and knowledgeable walk leaders.
The acclaimed Cowalfest website is full of information and makes it so easy to make bookings which are really advisable especially as most walks have limits on the number of walkers to visit the site directly please follow this Link http://www.cowalfest.org/
Each day of the Festival the SEASONS COFFEE HOUSE just yards away from the Tourist Visitor Information Centre on the Alexandra Parade will have members of the Cowalfest committee hands on to give out the latest news of events and also like the Visitor Centre take bookings .
All ages and abilities are catered for and the walks cover interest areas of wildlife, bird watching, drama, photography, art, history, heritage, folklore, tai chi, great gardens, great houses and some great hill walks including the opportunity to complete over 6 days the long distance trail ‘The Cowal Way’.
New activites this year include a Mountain bike race, Nordic Walking and Canoeing and If you’ve got the time (and the energy!) you can also go to one of the ever popular musical or arts events.
IT ALL STARTS FRIDAY 9.30AM FULL DETAILS www.cowalfest.org and the Events 2015 Programme
