We are planning to go up to the Orkney Festival taking place in late May this year (24th to 27th). Does anyone know if there are any Wild Camping meets planned for Orkney at about that time....or in Northern Scotland shortly before or shortly afterwards ? We've not yet been to any meets, and are starting to think we are missing out.
Thanks for the reply....anyone up for an informal meet up at the Orkney Festival ?
Do yo mean the Folk Festival ? We were on Orkneys a couple of years ago that week. Didn't know in advance there was anything on. The formal gigs were all sold out but the fringe pubs and informal Jams were good. Not a WC meet. We parked up at Stromnes Ferry Car park o/night no probs. HTH a bit ?
If at 1st you don't succeed ... skydiving probably isn't for you
We went up to Orkney for a couple of weeks for the Folk Festival a couple of years back, and really enjoyed it - great music, great wildlife photos. Made very welcome at all the venues. Wild-camped every night all over the place; car parks beside the venues, parking bays by beaches, etc... Coincided with the centenary of the Battle of Jutland (minor royalty attending), so all the pubs were packed with security staff and naval officers, but had a great time (didn't really mind the long wait to get to the bar). Going back this year, when it should be a little bit quieter.
