Western Ferries continue support for Cowal Highland Gathering

Once again Scotland’s premier family-friendly Highland Gathering will feature its traditional send-off. Western Ferries today (Friday 15 June) confirmed that as part of their long-standing and wide-reaching local sponsorship programme, that they are once again supporting the Cowal Highland Gathering’s (CHG) closing fireworks display, which has become a firm favourite with Gathering goers of all ages.

Western Ferries has sponsored the fireworks display for many years and the event’s organisers welcomed today’s announcement.

CHG Chair Ronnie Cairns thanked Western Ferries for its continued support of Argyll’s only international event saying: “Western Ferries is one of the area’s highest profile businesses with a long history of supporting not only Cowal Highland Gathering, but local events, festivals and organisations across the area. To once again have Western Ferries as one of our main sponsors is great news for us.

“Their support goes well beyond sponsoring the closing fireworks display. During the event, they lay on extra sailings between Hunter’s Quay and McInroy’s Point allowing competitors, spectators, exhibitors and entertainers to get to and from the Gathering with minimal delay.

“Today’s confirmation of this continuing support is the perfect way to kick off the countdown to this year’s event.”

Western Ferries Managing Director Gordon Ross said, “We are always delighted to be working alongside and being part of the Cowal Highland Gathering.

“This is one of our favourite weekends in the calendar celebrating Highland culture as well as showcasing Dunoon and Cowal as a year-round tourist destination.

“The Western Ferries’ fireworks finale is a fitting end to three days of world-class competition which is enjoyed by locals, visitors and competitors.”

This year’s Cowal Highland Gathering runs from Thursday 23 - Saturday 25 August. For more information contact info@cowalgathering.com or visit www.cowalgathering.com
