The Skye Book Festival is run by a community charity called Cleas.

Over the last five years, the Skye Book Festival has become firmly established as one of the highlights of Skye’s cultural calendar. Year on year the Festival delivers a comprehensive programme offering something for everyone.

The next festival will take place 31 August – 2 September 2017.

In 2016 the programme explored everything from gripping crime thrillers, Skye family history, music and Gaelic culture to wild outdoor activities in a series of events, discussions and debates. We were thrilled to host some of the most interesting literary figures and personalities along the way. Highlights included The Campbells of Canna, Joanne Harris and Peter May. THANK YOU to all the authors, artists, audiences, sponsors and staff who supported and were part of the Skye Book Festival 2016. It was a magnificent festival – the best yet. Looking forward to next year already!
