Killin Music Fest kicked back from Covid with three-days of feel-good factor.

The award-winning festival with community at heart never missed a beat all weekend.

Manran headlined on Friday with Skerryvore rocking McLaren Hall on the Saturday night and Taynuilt songstress Karen Matheson bringing the Sunday to a stunning close.

Heisk, Man of the Minch, Daimh, Fara, TRIP, Rock Choir were just some of the other bands and acts who gave their all performing to a foot-stomping crowd, happy to be back partying in Killin.

Other highlights included inviting young guest piper Calum James Balloch from Crieff up on Saturday night’s main stage to give the crowd a few tunes. The talented 11-year-old was just £140 short of reaching his £2,000 fundraising target to help Ukraine until Killin’s big-hearted festival committee made his night by donating the rest.

Doune Pipe Band marching in sunshine over the bridge to the hall for more community-led music on Sunday morning was another joy spreader from this much-loved festival back for its fifth showing which came perfectly packaged and complete with fringe entertainment.
