Saturday night headliner to be Embrace

Definitely not going to miss them this time. I'll bring my telescopic sights' date=' and I've got my reload time [i']right down...

Hopefully the thought of their presence won't spoil my enjoyment too much. This really is one of the best festivals there is, regardless of who's playing - fantastic atmosphere.

is it a decent place for taking kids???? Plenty to keep them amused??? ANyone camped?

Reasonable for kids. If you want a really child-friendly event tho' date=' try the Traquair Fair. [url']http://www.traquair.co.uk/fair.html Sometimes their music line-up is surprisingly good as well. :)

Camping OK, roughly mown fields, few rocks & the ground was reasonably soft. Plenty of mown hay about to stuff under the tent as well. Comfy! :D If you want a decent nights sleep tho, specify the quiet area when you book your ticket, that settles down @midnight. Vehicles are parked away from tents, except in the campervan/caravan field. Both are also nearer to the main festival gate - I was in the west field & because of the licence restrictions, you had to walk right round the site to get-in as the gates on my side were either exit only or only open when the bar was active. Not a serious hike but with a stumping hangover & a need for coffee/medication, it was bad enough! Partying was pretty constant in that field the whole time. :)

how long does it take to get there?

and is there anyway to get there via public transport?

A couple of hours on the train/bus to Inverness then either a £10 taxi to the festival itself or the Beauly service bus to the Kiltarlity road-end then @20-30 mins walk after that. For some reason last year, direct buses to the festival from Inverness were few & far between. A couple went out on the Friday & back on Sunday AM but only one each way on the Saturday. However, a more regular minibus ran from Muir of Ord for some reason. It also has a station, change at Inverness. Hopefully things will be better this year as the numbers are going up by @ a third.

The site was also emminently cyclable from Inverness as well.
