The venue beat off competition from the Highlands’ Achnagairn House, Glasgow’s House for an Art Lover and Tall Ship, as well as Edinburgh’s Royal College of Surgeons, and the Ghillie Dhu. Described by judges as being in a unique location and hosting innovative events the venue has evolved over recent years. Yvonne Murray explains “It’s very clear that the direction of our new company is much better suited to the buildings than what went before, and I’m delighted to be leading the charge with Bruce in creating a very special venue for Scotland. It’s a great feeling to be recognised by these prestigious awards – and we’ve only just begun.”

Bogbain’s cobbled floor, stone walls, high ceilings as well as quirky additions such as a saloon bar have clearly been going down well with events such as The Inverness Whisky Festival, Brew at the Bog (sponsored by BrewDog) and the Northern Roots Music Festival having their homes at the venue. Recent events have included The Whisky River Band’s debut album launch. Forthcoming events include Charlotte Church and Bombskare playing.
