Mòd An Obain 2024

Friday 11th – Saturday 19th October 2024



The Royal National Mòd – Scotland’s premiere celebration of Gaelic language, culture and heritage – returns to Oban and Argyll in 2024.

Thousands of competitors and attendees will be welcomed to the town to take part in over 200 planned competitions and a diverse fringe programme of concerts, exhibitions, children’s activities, talks and more from 11-19 October 2024.

The Mòd an Òbain Local Organising Committee, alongside BID4Oban, The Rockfield Centre and An Comunn Gàidhealach will be working throughout the year to prepare a Mòd fringe programme that showcases the very best of what Oban, Argyll and the wider Gaelic community has to offer; if there’s something you’d like to see at Mòd an Òbain 2024, please get in touch!

“Oban is renowned amongst Mòd stalwarts for always hosting a wonderful event, and we hope to continue that tradition in 2024, with a broad range of events and different ways for attendees, visitors and locals to engage with the rich Gaelic culture at the heart of the Mòd. Mòd 2024 aims to galvanise this interest and kick start conversations about the future of Gaelic, not just in Oban, but nationally as well. We look forward to seeing you all there!”
