Dunoon has a long association with the Mod having been the venue on seven previous occasions between 1930 and 2012. Alasdair McCuish representing the Dunoon Mod Committee said at the announcement by John Macleod President of An Comunn Gaidhealach  “We are delighted that the Mod is coming back in 2018. We have staged it four times in the last twenty years and I think we have the hang of it now. He joked that it would be great if major Mod sponsor the Ferry Company CalMac could arrange a new ferry for the town of Dunoon by 2018.

Almost immediately planning will start and continue for the next four years to make a great  Successful Mod.
