Shining a Light

The St Duthac Book and Arts Festival takes place in a variety of venues across the Easter Ross Peninsula including the Royal Hotel.

An imposing building with a lot of character in a prime position on Tain High Street. Designed by Maitland & Sons and built in 1872 it is just a minute’s walk from the fascinating Tain and District Museum and Clan Ross Centre. The Museum/Centre complex is set in the grounds of the beautiful medieval church of St Duthac.

Our Pop-Up Bookshop, which is in the Clan Ross Room at the Royal Hotel, is the perfect place to visit during the festival to browse through pre-loved books and new books, admire some local artwork, enjoy a coffee, chat with some local folk and meet some visitors from further afield.
