Where to Eat and Sleep!

There is a great range of options for food and accommodation right across the whole of Lochaber. Throughout the area, the Outdoor Capital of the UK, there are campsites, B&B, Guest Houses and Hotels for every budget. The “home” of the Festival… The Alexandra Hotel strathmorehotels-thealexandra.com is a warm and inviting hotel which will welcome you with open arms. Please ask for a Festival rate when you’re booking your accommodation.

An extra attraction of staying in the Alexandra Hotel is to attend the Official After Party!! This takes place in the Alex after the Saturday night show so you can dance the night away at our Festival Ceilidh and mix with festival goers and speakers alike. You can then fall into bed by just heading straight upstairs… what could be easier.

Should you prefer a different venue, there is lots of choice and a full range of alternative accommodation can be found at www.outdoorcapital.co.uk/stay

Right inside the main event venue – The Nevis Centre – the Lightgarden Cafe is offering an awesome festival special menu. Come on down early and check out the exhibition, have a beer and eat with the Lightgarden!
