The Fourth

Stranraer Oyster Festival

Cancelled

SDT are sad to have to announce the cancellation of this years planned Stranraer Oyster Festival over the weekend of September 11/12 and 13th September. Despite leaving the difficult decision as long as possible, in the end there is no way as organisers we can guarantee the environment for a safe event given the current situation worldwide.

 

 

 

 

To celebrate the annual harvesting of Loch Ryan`s unique Scottish Native Oysters, Stranraer Oyster Festival takes place in September.

They’re sought after by chefs around the world but until fairly recently Scotland’s only wild, native oyster fishery, hidden beneath the crystal clear waters of Loch Ryan, was a well-kept seafood secret.

Stranraer Oyster Festival has shone a spotlight on this delicious seafood delicacy, making Scottish native oysters accessible and easy to try and enjoy during this three-day foodie celebration.

The Festival was due to return for its fourth year from Friday 11th – Sunday 13th September 2020 but due to the current situation the Stranraer Development Trust have taken the very sad decision to cancel the event for 2020  Despite being relatively new to the food festival scene, it has quickly become established as one of Scotland’s most exciting foodie experiences.

The Festival marks the start of the native oyster season, which opens on 1st September

Not too many people know that Loch Ryan is host to one of the largest oyster beds in Scotland. The beds contain  an estimated 1 million oysters and dates back to 1701 when a Royal Charter was granted. The Loch Ryan Oyster Bed is the only one in Scotland to be self-sufficient and harvesting is carefully managed to provide potential for further growth in oyster numbers.

The Oyster Festival is spread over three days and details of the full and varied programme can be found on their website.
