Lochaber has a long tradition of producing fine quality strawberries. Local soil characteristics, along with the micro climate produced by the lake, create excellent growing conditions for production of this delicious fruit.
In tribute to this tradition, the Lochaber Community Development Association annually holds a Strawberry Festival, during the peak of the local harvest, on a Sunday afternoon at Sylvan Hall – this year at the new Lochaber Centre! Strawberry shortcakes made using local berries, homemade biscuits and topped with whipped cream are served, along with beverages, while local performers provide continuous entertainment.
This year the Strawberry Festival will be on July 20 from 1-5PM. Everyone is welcome, as always!
