Lochaber's annual agricultural/horse/food/craft show is held beneath the spectacular backdrop of Ben Nevis at Inverlochy Castle Farm, Happy Valley, by kind permission of Ewen Campbell. Please look at our location page for details of how to get to the show.
The show attracts around 1500 locals and visitors and is a celebration of what rural Lochaber has to offer. Entry is £8 for adults and £6 for concessions. Thanks to the generosity of our local sponsors all school children will have free entry this year.
Stock Judging starts at 9:30am, so come early if you want to watch it!
The Handicraft Section has lots of different categories from baking and jams to knitting, photography and vegetables - there's something for everyone and you can enter as many categories as you like once you have paid your show entry fee.
