2016 Food on Film Festival the best ever

The 9th annual Food on Film Festival in Kingussie ran this year between 4th-7th February and the events this year saw the biggest crowds yet.

The festival was launched on the Thursday evening in the Iona Gallery by local councillor Jaci Douglas and the evening's film "Queen of the Sun" kicked off this year's honey bee theme.

Festival on James MacPherson and the Works of Ossian

18-19th April 2015
This month as part of Kingussie's Heritage Festival and in association with the University of the Highlands and Islands there was a major weekend event marking the 250th anniverary of "The Works of Ossian, son of Fingal" published by local man James MacPherson.
The fact that MacPherson's work has been largely forgotten in Scotland is ironic as he remains well-known overseas. Something the Heritage Festival is keen to put to rights.

Heritage Festival a growing success

Kingussie hosted its second Heritage Festival with a much enhanced programme of events. Friday dawned wet and windy, however 10 hardy souls followed Dr Simon Green from RCAHMS on a very interesting and informative Architectural Trail round Kingussie.


Last Saturday (Jan 11th) saw a bit of snow and a bit of sun, as well as French music filling the airwaves in Kingussie High Street and Onion Johnnies gathering in advance of Food on Film to launch the Box Office (Bikefest Scotland will be making an appearance as onion sellers at the festival!).
