Homecoming Scotland 2014: Harris Tweed Hebrides Tattoo 2014


Harris Tweed Hebrides Tattoo 2014 will take place on the Isle of Lewis on Friday, 8 and Saturday, 9 August, as part of the year-long Homecoming Scotland 2014 celebration. The programme will contain something for everybody – music, dancing, singing and world-class piping. Amongst the 10 pipe bands performing on the Lews Castle Green will be the highly acclaimed, six times world champions, the Simon Fraser University Pipe Band from Canada, who have been at the very pinnacle of the piping world for many years.

On the Friday night, as well as all the music, singing and dancing, there will be a horse parade, organised by the local Pony and Riding Clubs. The evening will conclude with performances by the massed Gaelic choirs and the massed pipers, followed by a spectacular fireworks display.

Saturday, 9 August is carnival day in Stornoway, with pipe bands and floats parading through the town. This will be followed, in the evening, by a grand concert in the Lochside arena.

All-in-all, this promises to be an event not to be missed and well worth a visit to the Outer Hebrides to take in. Early booking for accommodation would be strongly recommended – we still have vacancies here at Cabuzana Bed and Breakfast but, being at the height of the tourist season, this will soon change.
