Argyll's past, present... and future in the Heritage Tent


Visit the Heritage Tent, sponsored by The Oban Times, to gain an insight into Argyll's past, present... and future.

Come and meet representatives from local organisations, all eager to welcome visitors and share their knowledge and enthusiasm. Find out more about Argyll's natural history - our abundant marine environment, diverse wildlife and conservation initiatives.

Talk to enthusiasts about our historical & heritage sites - museums, castles and ancient archaeological monuments. Meet local groups dedicated to preserving our heritage & culture and taking it forward for future generations.

There are four words in the Gaelic language which perfectly describe our Heritage Tent:

DUALCHAS - our acute Highland sense of tradition, history, culture and heritage
DUTHCHAS - our very vivid sense of place
CEOL - our love of music
CAINNT - the drama of our language

Step inside and experience the many strands that make up Argyll's rich local heritage. Entry to the Heritage Tent is free. Fàilte.
