Most of our Guests head off into the peace and tranquility of the Scottish Highlands but some use our campervans as a very handy home, while attending outdoor festivals or events.

Scotland is obviously a world-renowned Festival destination, thanks largely to it's many city based festivals but which of the lesser known festivals would the locals recommend?

We give you the hottest 2018 tips for the best festivals to camp at, in chronological order, here:

Summer Festivals in Scotland


runs from 24th to 27th May and is in Dumfries & Galloway, close to Castle Douglas. It is a family friendly international music festival. The line-up includes traditional Scottish music and ceilidh, roots bands from around the globe, dance music DJs, comedians, theatre, workshops and more.

The Islay Festival of Music & Malt

runs from 25th May to 2nd June and unsurprisingly features traditional Scottish music, ceilidhs and whisky tasting across the eight working distilleries on the island. In addition to this you can learn Gaelic and enter fly fishing competitions.



Is a celebration of beer, music and food and is in Argyll from 1st-3rd June. If you appreciate real ale, eclectic music and tasty food, this one's for you!

Oban Live

Traditional and Scottish fusion music both in a stadium venue and intimate fringe gigs across the town in pubs and halls. Camping will be in campsites, not at the stadium. On the 8th and 9th June.

The Eden Festival

Is just outside Moffat and is on from 7th to 10th June. With 10 different areas/stages for entertainment, expect plenty to choose from, including a DJ set from the mighty Groove Armada. There's a workshop arena where you can learn blacksmithing and other traditional crafts, a drive in cinema and plenty for kids too.

Cream o the Croft

Mountain biking festival at Comrie Croft, near Crieff from 15th to 17th June. Plenty varied entertainment for non bikers but as our bike racks only hold two bikes, you may have the best reason to not be too energetic.

Kelburn Garden Party

In the grounds of the artfully graffitied Kelburn Castle you will find all sorts of music, arts and entertainment, including a Secret Forest trail and a Western style Saloon Bar. On from 29th June to 2nd July.

Heb Celt

Runs from 18th-21st July and is on the Isle of Lewis. Expect Celtic music, traditional, contemporary and fusion, from Deacon Blue to Niteworks.


80s music festival at Scone near Perth. This year's line-up includes OMD, Status Quo, UB40 & The Boomtown Rats, on from 20th to 22nd July.

Electric Fields

Is in the grounds of Drumlanrig Castle in Dumfries and Galloway from 30th Aug to 1st Sept. Besides music from the awe inspiring Leftfield, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds and James, you can also expect a fairground and a real ale festival. 

2018 Festival Tickets

2018 seems to offer more quality choice than ever on the festival front in Scotland. However tickets for all of these festivals and camping (either at the festival, or a nearby campsite) will be strictly limited and are likely to sell out. We haven't included festivals where we're aware campervan pitches have already sold out but we cannot guarantee the campervan tickets will be around long for these events either.
