Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival – A Great Family Event

If you enjoy a good music and theater festival but want to try something a little smaller and less commercialized than usual, give the Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival a try. Suitable for the whole family – from tiny tots to grumpy grandpas – the Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival is a great festival in Scotland with plenty of heart and soul.

The Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival is often rated by fans as being the best family festival in Scotland. This small, but well developed festival, has now been running for a period of four years. During this time it has not only gained a reputation for being a fun, family-orientated affair, but it has also expanded significantly to provide a truly memorable festival experience. Some visit for the music – enjoying a variety of music from jazz to rock with almost any member of the family. Others visit for the theater where lively cabaret performances and enchanting child-orientated productions will keep you entertained for hours. The performance tent is the place to go if you are looking for theatrical productions, though you can also see quite a bit at the street theater.

This popular two-day open-air event features a stage for relatively unknown, unsigned musicians. The festival is the perfect place for such up-and-coming talent to gain recognition. This excellent Scottish festival also features stalls, charities, food and drink, alternative healing therapy and a great organic mart where you can buy the freshest fruit and vegetables. Some aspects of the festival are weird and others are wonderful. Visitors can expect to be fired up by dance, performance art, cabaret, poetry recitals, comedy, debate, rock, pop, jazz and much, much more. Festival goers are encouraged to experience the whole festival, starting with the ‘Crack It Open Ceilidh’ on the opening night and ending with an exciting Invenetian Masked Ball on the last day, which everyone is encouraged to attend decked out in fancy dress.

The Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival is set to take place in Inverness-shire in the Scottish Highlands at Belladrum Estate. So don’t wait another second. Book your stay at the estate and enjoy one of the best Scottish festivals combined with a fantastic natural setting. You won’t regret it.
