There is family and disabled camping also available. For children, the Kids' Marquee runs creative activities, culminating in a childrens' procession.

Bo Airigh

The main stage, the Bo Airigh, is named after the sacred cattle that were once worshipped in the valley, the Shieling dance tent is another reference to the land's prior use and the Celtic longhouse, once a common site in the hills, is revived again with rousing fiddles, sitar and kora.
