This page covers the whole spectrum of entertainment available close to your holiday accommodation at Shenval organic B&B, near Loch Ness in the Highlands of Scotland.  Along with Highland culture and heritage events, music (Blas Festival,  Blazin' in Beauly, contemporary, Scottish, traditional, Celtic, fiddle workshops, jazz), theatre, dance, craft workshops, archaeology festival and exhibitions are detailed below. More specific events like Highland Games are listed in the column to the left , while outdoor events such as guided walks, walking festivals, duathlons, marathons and fun runs can be found in the left column too.

Of course large venues like Eden Court in Inverness,  half an hour's drive from Shenval B&B, have the financial clout to attract the biggest names of international entertainment in fields as diverse as opera, ballet, dance, theatre, comedy, drama, visual arts, classical music, jazz and traditional music, some of which we highlight here, every now and then.

More modest places like The Ironworks and Hootananny in Inverness are more specialised in folk, blues, rock/blue grass and world music.
But most of all we prefer to give even more modest venues in nearby villages like those in Drumnadrochit, Beauly or Strathpeffer the chance to promote well-known and less well-known artists who provide valued entertainment opportunities in remote countryside. Indeed, there is fun, culture and entertainment well beyond the boundaries of the Highland capital!

Also always worth having a look at is the Kilmorack Gallery, only 25mns' drive from Shenval B&B.

Thursday 2, Friday 3 and Saturday 4, for its 15th year, the Belladrum Tartan Heart festival, the Beauly family-friendly event includes over 90 acts across 5 stages featuring local and internationally renowned artists.

Saturday 18, Dores welcomes Groove Loch Ness.  Groove Loch Ness will once again transform the world famous location into Scotland’s biggest nightclub under the stars.

Wednesday 1 and Thursday 2, Black Isle Show, Muir of Ord, half an hour's drive from Shenval Bed and Breakfast. Livestock, tractors, food, specialty bars and beer tents, craft, funfair. A family day out.

Friday 7 to Saturday 15, the Blas Festival is the annual celebration of traditional Scottish and Gaelic music and song in the Highlands of Scotland stretching its wings right across the Highlands. Full programme to be released soon. Saturday 15 will culminate with the grand finale concert gathering 500 young musicians at the Northern Meeting park in Inverness beside two great Highland bands: Skipinnish and Trail West.

Monday 15 – Friday 19 October. THE fiddle event in the UK, Blazin' in Beauly appears for its 18th year 20 mns from Shenval B&B. Renowned Scottish traditional music band Blazin’ Fiddles host a wonderful week of tuition, concerts, ceilidhs and craic, welcoming thousands of folk to the little town of Beauly in the Highlands of Scotland, near your accommodation at Shenval Bed&Breakfast. World-renowned duo fiddler Alasdair Fraser and cellist Nathalie Haas special guests this year.
