Rockness

Rockness Music Festival is Northern Scotland’s premier annual music festival which takes place on the beautiful shores of Loch Ness. The aptly named festival is a three-day, no holds barred musical extravaganza.

Rockness normally takes place on the first weekend of June, running from Friday morning to Sunday evening. The action takes place over three main stages, with a ‘fringe festival’ showcasing up-and-coming acts at the local Black Isle Pub. The line-up is normally very diverse to suit a variety of musical tastes and previous acts have included Fatboy Slim, Example, Madness, The Maccabees and Scotland’s very own Calvin Harris.

Camping?

Many of the 5,000 plus festival goers brave the elements and camp for three days. If knee-deep mud, portaloos and a crowded field full of tents isn’t your kind of thing, then we have an alternative.

At The Kingsmills, we are only a short taxi ride away from Clune Farm which hosts this great festival. You can enjoy a full day of partying and then head back to our hotel for a satisfying hot meal, clean shower and an incredibly comfy bed that will soothe your weary legs. You will wake up refreshed and ready for another day at the festival, with a full Scottish breakfast to keep your stamina high from the get go.
