Urquhart Castle

A creative journey through song, story and light

The jewel of Loch Ness becomes a treasure chest of Scottish arts and culture for one weekend, as we bring stories of the sea and lochs to life in ‘Aiseag’.

Through craft, art, music, animation, film and lighting- a programme of innovative and immersive events will take you on a voyage of discovery to explore Gaelic culture, heritage and traditions.

With a range of family friendly events to enjoy, the weekend will culminate in a highlight performance on the Saturday evening. 

This will see a spellbinding mix of dramatic digital projections on the castle walls with live music and dance, captivating the audience as they sail through tales of the Great Glen and around the coast of northern Scotland. 

The word Aiseag translates to ferry, a poetic metaphor of the journey you’ll go on over this exciting weekend. Dramatic, ambitious and unforgettable. This is a celebration of history and folklore you do not want to miss.

Tickets will be available later this year.
