Unmatchable Highland landscape, legendary hospitality and the bringing together of knitters from all over the world. Loch Ness Knit Fest is now in its 3rd year and we're preparing for what's set to be the best one yet!

You'll see Inverness Leisure Centre as an awesome Loch Ness Knit Fest hub. There's a massive programme of events including 30+ workshops, main stage entertainment, crafting village and marketplace with over 60 sellers!
In addition to the array of crafting delights you can also enjoy a ceilidh with renowned fiddle supergroup 'Blazin Fiddles', tuck into a highland feast, take a cruise on Loch Ness and much more.
