Celebrating the club’s 100th birthday, the competition forms part of Scotland’s Salmon Festival – a biannual event organised by Inverness College UHI in partnership with Inverness Angling Club and supporters, which this year takes place from 29th August to 2nd September.

The festival’s extensive programme will kick off at Eden Court Theatre on 29th August with a mini salmon film festival, featuring short features about the fish’s influence on Scotland – coupled with salmon canapés.

For students and scholars, Inverness College UHI will host a public lecture evening and two-day conference on 30th and 31st August, providing an academic insight into the iconic species.

Entitled “Atlantic Salmon Marine Ecology – Knowns and Unknowns”, the symposium has been organised by Professor Eric Verspoor at the Rivers and Lochs Institute (RLI) at Inverness College UHI.

For families, the pinnacle of the week will be the free Bught Park fair on 1st and 2nd September where visitors can enjoy the Marine Harvest Theatre Kitchen and Salmon Barbecue, food and craft marquee and children’s’ activities such as storytelling, invertebrate trays, electrofishing and casting lessons.  There will also be Alexander Grant museum tours on 30th August, where visitors can learn about the famous, record breaking Speycaster.
