The Inaugural West Coast Whisky Fèis

The first annual festival of Scotland's west coast distillers will be held
at Skipinnish Cèilidh House in the scenic port-town of Oban: Gateway to the Isles.

Experience the spirit
of the West Coast

From the sheltered waters of the Firth of Clyde to the Atlantic swells of the Outer Hebrides, experience whiskies as diverse in character as the coastline itself.

Meet the people behind the drams

Chan fhiach cuirm gun chòmhradh! A feast is no use without conversation! Enjoy a dram and a chat with the good folk from the distilleries, or even attend one of the exclusive masterclasses being held throughout the day.

Visit the town with whisky at its heart

The town of Oban, it can be said, owes its very existance to the founding of what is now one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland. Where better to have a gathering and celebration of whiskies from this part of the world?
