We’re linking up the village in 2019, by spreading festival events across 4 fantastic venues, each located within a short walking distance of one another. Astley Hall is a refurbished Arts & Crafts building, the Land, Sea & Islands Centre is a bright and welcoming visitor space, The Crofter’s is our friendly local bar and musical hot spot, and Arisaig Station is a traditional style train station on the world famous West Highland Line. Check out the links below.
Respectfully, we busy festival organisers can’t help you with travel, sleeping and eating arrangements… we’re just about the music! However, we do advise that you plan and book in advance – it’s a VERY popular area – and we want you to come and enjoy the festival in this amazing part of the world!
There’s a number of self-catering options, a hotel and B&Bs in and around Arisaig, plus further staying options in Lochailort, Morar and Mallaig listed on:
If you’re campervanning or pitching a tent, we encourage you to book at a campsite, which are all located between 1 and 3 miles from Arisaig village on the coastal road (please note there are no sites in Arisaig village itself). Search online for our local campsites at Kinloid, Back of Keppoch, Invercaimbe, Sunnyside Croft, Portnadoran, Silversands and Camusdarach.
Arisaig offers something for every appetite and pocket – Arisaig Hotel & The Crofter’s, The Old Library, Cafe Rhu, Arisaig Marina Cafe and a few miles away, Arisaig House. There are also eating options further afield – hotel dining, pub grub, cafe and take-away – in Glenfinnan, Lochailort, Morar and Mallaig.
There is a local bus service running between Mallaig and Fort William (via Arisaig) during the daytime only.
Lawrie’s taxi service will be operating over the festival weekend, with 2 x 8 seater vehicles available. Call him direct on 07876807693.
If you still have time (and energy!) after the festival, why not explore the surrounding area? We are accessible for Lochaber, Ardnamurchan, Knoydart, the Small Isles and Skye. Happy planning!
