Home » Event » Stranraer Oyster Festival 2019

13 to 15th September 2019

The Third

Stranraer Oyster Festival

will be held in and around Stranraer on

13- 15 September 2019

To celebrate the annual harvesting of Loch Ryan`s unique Scottish Native Oysters, Stranraer Oyster Festival takes place in 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 will be spread over three days and details of the full and varied programme can be found on their website.
