An Evening of Stories and Song with Jimmie MacGregor on board Maid of the Loch

Jimmie Macgregor, Scotland’s veteran TV and radio presenter, is performing an evening of his music and chat on board the paddle steamer Maid of the Loch, based at Balloch, on Saturday 6th August from 5pm to 7pm, in aid of the Maid’s restoration funds.

“Jimmie Macgregor’s Gathering on Songs, Stories, and Famous Folk” is sure to be an entertaining selection of material from Jimmie’s long and successful career – and this covers over 60 years. From starring in the duo Robin Hall & Jimmie Macgregor on BBC TV, to championing the West Highland Way, to meeting film and rock stars, he has tales to tell and songs to sing!

John Beveridge, Director of the Loch Lomond Steamship Company said:

We are delighted to offer this opportunity to hear some of the songs and stories from a true Scottish legend. Jimmie has been a real supporter of the Maid of the Loch since our charity was formed, and we are most grateful to him for staging his show in aid of the Maid’s funds”.

Tickets are limited, and are available via the charity’s website at priced £15, which includes a free glass of wine.

More information on the Maid of the Loch:

Maid of the Loch is owned by the Loch Lomond Steamship Company, a charity registered in Scotland. All its Directors and volunteers give their time free; there is no staff. It has raised – and reinvested – over £1.9 million since 1996 for the ship and infrastructure.

The Heritage Lottery Fund have supported LLSC’s plan to return the Maid of the Loch to steam operation in 2018 and have promised a further £3.8 million if the charity can raise the other £1.7 million in the £5.5 million project.

The Maid is moored at Balloch Pier on Loch Lomond as a static visitor attraction and is open to the public every day until September. Full details on the charity’s website.
