Throughout Summer and Autumn there are many arts and cultural events and activities happening across Skye.
Here are a few that have caught our eye, and which are easily accessible from Roskhill House (or worth travelling a little further for).
GNOSS... 22nd October 2023... Las, Portree... 730pm
Triple ‘Scots Trad Award’ nominees, Gnoss have built an invested following through their forward-thinking take on traditional music and the unique warmth of their live shows. This was proven most recently by their two back-to-back sellout appearances at Glasgow’s world-famous ‘Celtic Connections’ festival, with both their first headline show in 2020 and their most recent appearance in 2022 recreating their lock-down album ‘The Light of The Moon’.
ALAN BISSETT: The Moira Monologues 2: More Moira... 15th November 2023... Las, Portree... 730pm
Meet Moira Bell, cleaner, single mother, the hardest woman in Falkirk and ‘the most charismatic character to appear on a Scottish stage in a decade’ (The Scotsman). Based on the stories and characters Alan encountered growing up in Falkirk, where The Moira Monologues first premiered, Moira, her long-suffering pal Babs, her neighbour (Bawface), her laddies (guid laddies, but they canny take their hash) and her wee dug Pepe, have left audiences all over the country weak with laughter. Audiences can also see the original Moira Monologues on 14th November at Edinbane Community Hall.
SEALL FESTIVAL OF SMALL HALLS... 17th November 2023... Dunvegan Hall... 730pm
The festival returns for its 2023 edition with the opening ceilidh, featuring Mike Vass, Lori Watson, Megan Macdonald, Murdo Cameron, Ingrid Henderson, Ali Levack and Hannah Moule at nearby Dunvegan Hall. The line-up has been developed to bring a breadth of style, tradition and quality to the event, brining some of the country's top musicians to the some of the best venues around Skye & Lochalsh.
KIERAN HODGSON... 29th February 2024... Las, Portree... 730pm
