Ullapool Book Festival

The programme is out for Ullapool, one of the first book festivals of the season. I went to last year’s event and enjoyed the way literary and folk traditions are given equal attention. The small venues make the most of the ceilidh atmosphere and there’s a chance for local and visiting writers to share their work at open mike evenings in the parlour.

This year’s line up includes AL Kennedy and Bernard McLaverty but the limelight might just be pinched by the wee gem that is Isle Martin, where several of the sessions are being held. Access by boat and time to wander through a nugget of west coast history in the tea break… not to be missed if you’re able to get there.

Sadly it’s on during my holidays this year so if you’re lucky enough to go yourself, drop by here afterwards and give us a review.
