Where to stay

Wondering where to stay? If you’ve never been to the North West Highlands of Scotland before, you’re in for a treat. With some of the best scenery and landscapes in the UK, there’s something here for everyone. Of course responsible Wildcamping is allowed in Scotland and so you could seek out your ideal secluded spot, but to really get into the festival atmosphere you might like to stay on-site at Port a’Bhaig Campsite (cost included with a Camp and Ceilidh ticket).

There’s plenty of other accommodation in Coigach (the peninsular which Reiff is part of). There’s a website with a list of providers here.

The closest to the crag you can get is the hamlet of Reiff whilst Port a’Bhaig campsite is 2 minutes away from the pub (evening meals, pool table and drinks).

The hall where the ceilidh will be held is in Polglass, just under 5 miles away from the campsite.

There’s also a good grocery shop in Achiltibuie where you can stock up on essentials and a craft shop in Polbain where you can get some souvenirs!
