About Us | Sinn

There has been a book festival at the Sunart Centre from its earliest days. However about 6 years ago a new group of volunteers got together to create the Three Lochs Book and Arts Festival. It was decided to run this as a biennial festival with smaller events taking place in between. So far we have had three very successful festivals - attracting some high calibre speakers and providing fabulous family fun.

In 2014 we started with a great 'Play in the Woods - Robin Hoodie in the Woods' by the Walking Theatre Company and thereafter had a very successful third Three Lochs Book and Arts Festival. We can only hope that our 2016 Three Lochs festival will be just as successful.

Three Lochs Book and Arts Festival arose from an existing smaller book festival held annually in the Sunart Centre, Strontian. A group of committed volunteers came together to develop an entertaining, educational and accessible biennial event, and also host smaller interim events. The 'new management' has now hosted three very successful and well attended festivals in 2010, 2012 and 2014.

The Festival benefits from a great deal of support from our patron, Alexander McCall-Smith, local businesses and volunteer helpers, without whom the Festival would not be possible.

The committee strives to ensure that events are provided for all ages, with our schools programme an integral part, and that it is affordable for all. We host a variety of authors and artists taking part in discussions, book readings, shows, workshops and film. Our event venue, the Sunart Centre, Strontian, is well suited to the festival and provides a welcoming environment which contributes to the much commented on enjoyable atmosphere of the Three Lochs Book and Arts Festival.
