    Please do not attempt to Wild camp in the Village of Strathyre or around the Festival Venue as you will most likely be asked to move on by the Police.

    Wild Camping is of course permitted in many  parts of Scotland away from populated areas but we need to draw attention to the very high risks from open fires in an area of significant forestry. Please camp sensibly and help us keep our beautiful area tidy. We are grateful for the vast majority of our visitors who leave the area reasonably tidy, which is a great help to the small team of volunteers that need to clean up after the event.    Thank  You .



    1. Have a great time.
    2. Just ask any of the Festival Team if you need help or information
    3. Please help us try to keep litter to a minimum to reduce our clean up time.
    4. Please visit and support  the Festival Market Stalls outside the Village shop.
    5. Please note : Open Fires are not permitted at the Festival venue or car park area
    6. Please dont bring glass drink glasses or glass bottles to the Festival - in the

    interest of safety and high risk to children from any accidental  breakages

    1. Please support us by buying drinks at the Festival Bar. This is our main source

    of income to keep the Festival going and is in fact, the main contribtion towards

    our growing running costs

    1. Parents Please keep young children accompanied at all times. The nearby river can be

    deep and  fast flowing at times and the busy A84 Trunk road is also closeby

    1. Dog Owners - Sorry but in the interest of safety and hygeine,  Pets  are not permitted at the Festival Music Venue - Sound can be loud and flashing lights can also be upsetting to pets. There are good pet walking facilities around the village if you chose to keep your Pet in a well ventilated car. Please remember to bring poop bags along.
