Blair Atholl Gala Nights - a popular night for locals and holiday makers.
The Blair Atholl Gala Nights occur on two evenings each summer, during the main tourism season. Blair Atholl has two caravan sites as well as two hotels and a host of B&Bs and self catering accommodating. There are a lot of people staying in the area each night during the main tourism season.
The Blair Atholl Area Tourism Association came across the idea to generate funds for itself, by putting on evening entertainment for all these visitors.
On YOU TUBE - A You Tube video to give you a flavour of all the fun at the Blair Atholl Gala night - this one was in July 2010 (9mins 51 secs).
Also on YOU TUBE - A video of the Blair Atholl Gala nights in 2009 (8mins 56secs).
While the Blair Atholl Area Tourism Association organises the evenings each year, it could not stage these gala nights without the support of many individuals and businesses in their association, who do so much to make it happen, from manning the gates, putting on acts in the arena, sheep shearing to Roman and Highland Soldiers to name a few.
Have a look at the website for dates for the next Gala nights. They are highly recommended!
