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!

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.
