Christmas Fair in Eden Court, Inverness
Attending Christmas fairs and markets is a traditional part of this magical time. They happen all over Scotland, with the biggest ones being held in Edinburgh and Glasgow.
The Scottish Highlands also have Christmas events and one of them is a Christmas Fair at Eden Court in Inverness from 7th December – 9th December 2018. The Christmas fair is organised by Exclusively Highlands.
Exclusively Highland is a family run business based on the Black Isle just to the North of Inverness. They host events in unique and beautiful locations across Highland, Grampian and Perthshire and have a collective of some of the finest art craft and food producers from across Scotland. This December, Exclusively Highlands will be bringing together over 100 of Scotland’s finest crafters and food producers to Eden court Inverness for the North of Scotland’s largest Art, Craft & Food Fair. Eden itself will be beautifully dressed for Christmas and amidst the atmospheric venue exhibitors will be displaying their wares and bringing even more choice for the Christmas shopper.
