4-28.8.17 almost 24 hours a day!!!

The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Edinburgh.

Internationally recognised as one of the best festivals in the world it would be a shame to not visit whilst your here. Only an hour from Lochend, take the park and ride, and either organise like a military operation (not too much geographical distance between venues!) or do as we did for several years when the children were between the ages of 5 and 12 and roam the streets, watch the street performers and soaking up the atmosphere.

Free to £60!

5-13.8.17 @ 10am to 6pm

The Pittenweem Arts Festival.

This small festival of art and artisans has grown to just the right size. Such a huge array of talent on show and to purchase! And a trip to the beautiful East Neuk of Fife is one we often recommend is your looking for a bit of beach from your Scottish holiday. So a combined day out is highly recommended. Victoria’s personal favourite. Add in the Gardens at Kellie Castle and you’ll have satisfied history, beach and art all in the one day!

Free to £25
