The annual Royal National Mod is a celebration of Gaelic culture, featuring competitions in music and song, highland dancing, drama, sport and literature. The first National Mod was held in Oban in 1892. Oban hosted the National Mod in 2009, the year of the Homecoming, a programme of events to encourage people with Scottish ancestry to ‘come home’.
