Welcome to the St Duthac Book and Arts Festival!
Fàilte chun an Fhèis Leabhraichean is Ealain Dhubhthaich!


We were thrilled to be back for our third year in 2023, bringing an exciting range of literature, art, music, and workshops to our beautiful corner of the Highlands. 

The St Duthac Book and Arts Festival is based on the Easter Ross Peninsula in the Highlands, and delivers a wide range of free and affordable events to capture the imagination of everyone,  regardless of age or stage in life. 

The festival is coordinated by a volunteer committee whose aim is to bring the community together socially and to stimulate the local economy by attracting visitors and inward investment to the area.

The St Duthac Book and Arts Festival aims to further promote local culture and instil a sense of belonging and pride in our area. With a varied  programme of events local folk and visitors were immersed in the written and spoken word through author events, workshops, arts and heritage trails and a Pop-Up Bookshop with Gallery.
