Scotland's Longest Running Food Festival, the Loch Fyne Food Fair, returns to Cairndow between the 11th & 13th May to celebrate its 40th anniversary!

Loch Fyne Food Fair: Fyne at Forty

About Loch Fyne Food Fair: Fyne at Forty

Forty years ago local landowner Johnny Noble and marine biologist Andy Lane registered their business of farming oysters in the clear waters of Loch Fyne in Argyll and selling them from a shed beside the A83. On 12th and 13th May this year the company will mark its 40th anniversary with a special "Fyne at Forty" weekend festival.

Over the two-day "Fyne at Forty" event, festival goers will be given access to areas normally closed to the public, such as the oyster sheds where each oyster is graded, purified and hand-checked for freshness before being despatched to one of many customers around the world.

There will be champagne tours of nearby historic Ardkinglas House, and you can test your chef skills in our oyster shucking competition or practice your navigation with our treasure hunt amidst the fantastic Loch Fyne scenery.

Children can get their faces painted before being entertained with musical activities and the grown-ups can unwind with demonstrations from top chefs as well as wine and whisky tasting. There will be great food available, and great music to enjoy in the entertainment beer marquee.

Weekend Highlights:
Chef Demonstrations
Oyster Farm Tours
Oyster Shucking Competition
Face Painting
Magician
Historic Photo Display
Aquarium
Craft and Art stalls
Fyne Ales Tours & Tastings
Loch Fyne Street Food
LIVE Music including The Camans
