Donald Og Day

August 310:00 am - 3:00 pm

Highland Village Iona

On August 3, 2023 celebrate the legend of Donald Og and the arrival of MacNeils from the Isle of Barra to Iona. On board a British man of war patrolling the Bras d’Or Lake following the 1758 Seige of Louisbourg, Domhnall Og MacNeil brought news of the lake’s natural wonders home to his native Isle of Barra. Traditional food, natural dye, barvas ware and other demonstrations will take place throughout the day, along with a special running of Cash’s Carding Mill and a céilidh. We will also be joined by friends from Eskasoni Cultural Journey and the Fortress of Louisbourg. Regular admission for the Highland Village applies. 10 am – 3 pm.
