Rather than providing individual accommodation listings, this year we are giving links to a number of websites which are locally organised and will hopefully contain up-to-date information to help with your quest. Over the next month we will also be adding links to accommodation providers who are supporting our festival through advertising and partnership/sponsorship.
As the festival base for free music is in Dunkeld we have provided mileage based on the distance beginning in Dunkeld to the different key towns listed.
