Cowal Fest

join the three day walking


festival around the Cowal Peninsula

CowalFest Friday/Saturday/Sunday, 27th - 29th September 2019

New dates for CowalFest in 2019.


Due to financial and organisational problems, Cowalfest are offering three days of hill and trail walks on the 27th, 28th, and 29th September, 2019, to tie in with Dunoon Presents Outdoor Festival.

This is a new event covering many different outdoor activities around Dunoon and Cowal. With Dunoon Presents promotional expertise and experience, we hope to reach many new walkers, as well as welcoming the return of regular attendees.

For this year only we are looking at offering 3/4 walks per day of varying levels/abilities.
