We are looking forward to our 179th Lonach which will be held on the 4th Saturday in August 2022! 


The Lonach Highland and Friendly Society was founded in 1823 by Sir Charles Forbes,

1st Baronet of Newe and Edinglassie (1773-1849).

Membership is drawn from the inhabitants of Strathdon, who continue to fulfil the society’s original mission of

preserving Highland dress and “supporting loyal, peaceful, and manly conduct; and the promotion of

social and benevolent feelings among the inhabitants of the district.”


The Lonach Gathering & Games is held in the village of Bellabeg, Strathdon.


Tickets can be purchased on the day or in advance via PayPal, please click below for more information.
