Wheelchair Access

Wheelchair access
The majority of the festival site takes place in a field used for grazing highland cows. Consequently the ground can be susceptible to uneven surfaces and as such we roll the field prior to the festival (this practice is subject to weather conditions; if the ground is too dry then the roller can fail to roll out irregularities) and manually fill in any ruts we locate on a walkover of the fields. The field is largely flat in aspect with a gentle slope in one area. We will contact all disabled attendees within two weeks of the festival to update them on the condition of the festival site as it can be influenced by local weather conditions.

Short Distances

Short distance
Navigation from the car park to the festival site is step-free. The disabled car-park and pathway leading to the festival site is comprised of hardstanding and consists of a distance of approx. 850m. Disabled parking can be provided upon request within 50m of the festival site, however this would require parking in a field with potentially uneven surfaces (our highland cows live there most of the year!) and could be further compromised by poor weather. The max distance from one side of the festival site to the other is approx. 400m.

Access To Toilets

Access To Toilets
Temporary accessible toilets will be located no further than 100m from the stage and bar. The toilets will be located within the field or adjacent field to the main festival; the route to the toilets will comprise of a grass field.
