A huge array of activities are on offer at this festival, including baking competitions, a Great British Feast with food prepared by star Scottish chefs and many more activities for kids and adults alive.
There's plenty to eat and drink, too – from a barbecue to an oyster bar, beer festival and a food market buffet. A right old knees-up to celebrate the beginning of summer.

A sensational setting, sizzling music and five of Scotland’s top chefs: all signs that Mhor Festival is just around the corner.
Put together by the Lewis family, who run award-winning Monachyle Mhor and the brand new Mhor 84, it’s not surprising that food is at the heart of the festival. Sat May 25 challenges five famous chefs to cook a course each for the Festival Feast, giving festival goers a unique opportunity to sit down to an epic meal. The chefs taking part are:
Restaurant Andrew Fairlie – returning to the festival for the second year, Andrew is Scotland’s only two Michelin star chef
Roy Brett, Ondine – This award-winning seafood chef is back at Mhor Festival to showcase Scotland’s iconic seafood
Michael Smith, The Three Chimneys – Recent winner of the BBC’s Great British Menu, Michael Smith returns to the festival from his home on Skye
Neil Forbes, Café St Honore – One of Edinburgh’s best-loved and award-winning chefs
Tom Lewis, Monachyle MHOR – On his home turf, Tom is one of Scotland’s foremost chefs
With Best Live Act (Trad Music Awards), Session A9, kicking off the ceilidh on Sunday night, Mhor Festival is inviting visitors to dance off their dinner with more live music than ever before.
Other activity at the festival includes the opening Raft Race on Loch Voil and continues over the two days with DJs and live music; food and market stalls; afternoon tea; beer, wine, champagne and Pimms; oysters, a barbeque and a hog roast. There’s a Mhor bake off with a cake baking competition on Saturday and a best loaf challenge on Sunday. There’s also the opportunity to pick up some new moves at Tea and Tango.
This is a family-friendly festival with children’s activities including traditional fairground stalls like a coconut shy and beat the goalie, children’s entertainment and even pot planting in the gardens.
The festival’s spectacular setting on the shores of Loch Voil are ideal for enjoying the great outdoors but in the event of bad weather, the festival will move under cover to two large barns.
