Lochaber Agricultural Show 2021

Sheep

Regrettably, the 2021 show has been cancelled. There is much uncertainty about what events will and won't be allowed in the coming months, but we appreciate that for many people attending the show involves a lot of advanced preparation, and people need to be able to make some plans.

Instead, we are Stock Judging Event on show day, 28th August:

  • Time: 2:00pm
  • Location: Torlundy Castle Farm (turning opposite the golf course - please take care turning in and out on the bend.)
  • Parking is limited, so please share a lift if possible
  • All welcome, tea, cakes & BBQ.

Please note Covid precautions:

  • To reduce the number of people in one place at anytime: -Stock will be penned and judging will take place in their pen not in a ring.
  • -Pens can be judge in any order and at anytime between 2 and 5pm on Saturday.
  • -Please bring your own pencil / pen to mark your score cards.
  • -Refreshments Tea / Coffee / BBQ will be available but food will be served to you rather than self service.
  • -Facemasks and hand sterilzer will be available
  • -Raffle tickets will be on sale (proceeds to Macmillan Cancer Support) which will be drawn after the event. Results for stock judging and raffle will be posted on our facebook page and website by Sunday evening. Winners will be contacted by telephone.

  1. 1. If you have been asked to self isolate please do not attend
  2. 2. If you are concerned about your covid status please take a lateral flow test before attending the event
