A Lochaber tourism group is planning a haggis festival that is believed to be the first of its kind in Scotland.
The event, organised by the Glen Spean and Great Glen tourism group, will be held in Spean Bridge on April 11 .
Scotland’s Haggis Queen Jo Macsween will lead a cookery demonstration in a specially hired kitchen.
Other attractions include a craft fair, a “haggis hunt” and a children’s’ haggis recipe competition, with Skipinnish playing traditional Highland music in the village hall in the evening.
Ms Macsween was dubbed the “Haggis Queen” as a result of her campaign to make haggis accepted as a versatile year-round dish, rather than just a Burns Night meal. She has also written a book of recipes called the “Haggis Bible.”
A spokesman for the organisers said: “We understand that the festival will be the first ever held in Scotland and hope it will be of great interest to locals and visitors alike.
“A recent survey showed that many tourists in Scotland are fascinated by haggis, with some believing it is a real-life animal that hides in the forest.
“The festival will be a tasty way for them to discover the truth.”
