LOCAL ENTERTAINMENT NEAR SHENVAL
ORGANIC BED AND BREAKFAST BY LOCH NESS

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 (the Gathering,  Blazin' in Beauly, contemporary, Scottish, traditional, Celtic, fiddle workshops, jazz), theatre, dance, festivals 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.
