The annual Niel Gow Festival is a celebration in music of the life of Niel Gow (1727-1807), regarded by many as the patriarch of the Scottish fiddle tradition. With concerts, workshops, informal sessions and guided walks, it attracts visitors from all over the world. And all in the beautiful landscape of highland Perthshire which inspired Niel Gow almost three centuries ago.

One of the ultimate goals of the Festival has always been to create a conspicuous memorial to Niel Gow in Dunkeld, situated in a prominent position for all to see. That goal was achieved on 10th December 2020. Thank you everyone who made it possible.
