"Scotland in Miniature" became the backdrop for the inaugural Arran Rock ‘n Blues in 2018 and has grown into a two-day festival with a large marquee stage situated on Lamlash Green alongside live music in The Pierhead Tavern, Shore Road, Lamlash. A varied marketplace of local artisans & Arran produce, including Arran Whisky & Arran Gin, will be situated close to the marquee.
Approximately twenty bands will be performing over the weekend, playing in two venues.
