Media Release: WinterWeek+ offers mid-winter travellers a warm welcome


WINTERWEEK+, a cornucopia of events, activities and accommodation offers aimed at the mid-winter tourist, is to return to Kenmore this February.

Starting on Saturday 11th February and running until Sunday 19th February it offers visitors to the Kenmore area around 20 different events and activities suitable for individuals and families.

The Scottish Crannog Centre is one of the Kenmore businesses at the hub of WinterWeek+ and as part of the festivities will be opening its doors to the public in winter for the second year running following a significant restoration project to repair the Crannog that was initiated after this year’s winter storms.

Director, Barrie Andrian, explained: “We’re delighted to be opening in winter this year again as part of the WinterWeek+ celebrations which were extremely popular last year.

“Kenmore is the perfect location for a mid-term or short winter break and with many families and couples flocking to the area during winter, it seems to make sense to open our doors and ensure they see the best of Kenmore while they are here.”

The Scottish Crannog Centre has put together an innovative collection of events with opportunities for visitors to learn Iron Age skills which include their very popular ‘Living the Iron Age’, where participants of all ages can dress up and try their hand at cooking, lighting fires, spear-making and storytelling by firelight.

Other activities include craft workshops, food tasting events at the Mains of Taymouth Courtyard, numerous local dining discounts, and accommodation offers at some of the area’s finest hotels and bed and breakfasts.
