Registration and ticket sales for the Gathering are now open! Go to Buy Tickets to register.
Please read all the information about tickets, tours, and events. The tickets to some activities are very limited as the venues and modes of transportation are quite “petite”. If an event is sold out and you’d like to join the relevant waitlist, please email email@example.com. If someone cancels their tickets we’ll offer you the space, or if there are enough people on the waitlist for a tour we’ll look at adding another bus.
Please note that the Ceilidhs, the Taynuilt Highland Games, and the MacIntyres at Glenoe require separate registration for your shuttle bus and boat transport. This is to allow fine-grained choices of which parts suit you best. We can’t wait to meet you in July!
On 4 March 2017, we began counting down – 500 days until the Gathering. What should you to do prepare?
The Trust is not organising accommodation for the Gathering. We will leave you to make your own decisions about where you’d like to stay, according to your budget and preferences. There are many hotels in Oban, and some very lovely B&Bs. You can also look Airbnb for listings, and perhaps even think about hiring a campervan as campgrounds in Scotland are very well equipped.
The West Highlands feel like a world away once you get there, but it’s a relatively simple trip from anywhere in the world. If you fly into London, Glasgow, or Edinburgh, just take a train to Oban. Alternatively, you could hire a car at the airport and drive. Just remember that even though it’s only a short trip according to the map, you need to allow quite a bit longer so you can stop, enjoy the scenery, and take photos.
