Perthshire Amber 2015

Friday 30th Oct - Sunday 8th Nov 2015

The Perthshire Amber Festival, now in it’s 11th year, is likely to exceed all expectations once again! Scotland on Sunday’s Tom Maxwell commented “Dougie MacLean has created a wee gem of a festival in his home county... a drop of Amber nectar!” This (no longer ‘wee’) 10 day event had approx 10,000 people from 25 countries attending last year and contributed well over £1million to the local economy.

Dougie MacLean has developed a unique festival which shares his inspiring music, celebrates the history and culture of his Perthshire home and showcases its beautiful scenery. The concerts, which welcome high calibre musical guests from Scotland and abroad, are staged in a variety of wonderful venues, from village halls, town halls and a grand concert hall to historic castles and the atmospheric Dunkeld Cathedral.

"A jewel of a festival"

"A festival with vision and imagination"

"The most original acoustic music festival in Scotland today"
