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.
