Hiring a yurt
Fed up with the same boring tent/campervan experience? This year, you can hire a yurt instead for the ultimate in festival style. Yurt hire is available with or without the cost of a festival ticket – go to our yurt hire page for more details or contact firstname.lastname@example.org to make a booking.
Weather-permitting, you will be able to drive into the camping field to unload your car this year, but you cannot park beside your tent.
The car park is situated across the road from the main festival site, adjacent to the campsite. No vehicles are permitted anywhere else on the main festival site unless they have been issued with a pass by the festival office.
Solas Festival site is spread over 30 acres of mostly green field site and farmland. There are roadways that are hard compacted dirt and some cleared pathways but the site can be difficult to traverse, particularly in bad weather. Solas Festival does put tracking down over sections of the festival field to aid mobility, and previous years have seen a few wheelchair users moving around site including the festival field area. In addition to tracking, the barn, wee barn, the chapel and the yard venues (within the steading area) are all fully accessible on hard surfaces (concrete mostly). There is also disabled parking on site near these venues. There’s more information about accessibility on our page about disabled access.
This is proper old-fashioned camping – no electric hook-ups, and no use of generators for those who like to cheat. Toilets and water taps are provided in the campsite, but there are no showers available (it’s only one weekend, people, and we’re all friends). Baby-changing facilities are available in the festival village. Small barbeques are allowed in the designated area, but please do not light any open fires.
Please don’t bring glass packaging onto the campsite or the main festival area. Both areas of the site are used for livestock grazing throughout the year, and broken glass is dangerous for the animals’ feet and for vehicle tyres.
Tap water in Scotland is both delicious and clean. Free tap water is available to all festivalgoers from all the bars and food outlets on site as well as from the cold water taps on the campsite.
On site we have both general and recycling bins. Please divide your rubbish appropriately, being aware that putting non-recyclable matter into recycling bins does have a direct financial cost to the festival.
Bringing your caravan or campervan
We have limited space for small caravans and campervans – please contact the office to book a pitch (e-mail email@example.com). Due to the limited number of spaces booking a space will have a small additional cost; if the limited number of spaces have been filled we will be unable to provide space for caravans or camper vans without a confirmed space booking.
We have a dedicated section of the larger onsite campsite for disabled camping. Spaces are available in the disabled campsite for those with mobility and access difficulties,where cars may be parked adjacent to tents – please reserve a space by contacting the office. Unfortunately, we cannot currently provide electric charging facilities for mobility scooters or refrigeration facilities at this campsite. There are adapted toilets in four locations on site.
Local B&B accommodation and hotels can be found via the Perthsite Tourist Board website, or contact their Perth office on 01738 450621 for more information. There is a Travelodge on the A9 west of Perth which you can book online or by telephone (the central booking line number is 0871 559 1837).
A range of eco-camping and hostel options are also available at the award-winning Comrie Croft centre, which is 30 minutes’ drive/bus journey west of The Bield.
