For those of you looking for an authentic Scottish experience, I could not recommend the ‘Skye Live’ festival enough. An intimate gathering of like-minded, fun loving people and excellent music proves for a very enjoyable weekend.

‘Skye Live’ festival is small enough for you to not get Bermuda triangle lost in the crowd, whilst large enough to have that glittery, feathers in your hair, music loving, dancing with strangers summer feel to it.
Travelling up from Glasgow in a Rockin’ Vans Adventurer motor home was an excellent start to the adventure. With comfortable seating and a high vantage point from the drivers seat, the six-hour journey up breezed by. Although I have travelled that wild, northbound road many times, the scenery of the Scottish highlands takes my breath away every time. At a leisurely cruising pace and with a few stops for photos the journey was made with ease.
Parked up in a free car park at Portree’s harbor the area had a great atmosphere and party feel to it with lots of fellow campers and festivalgoers buzzing around. The festival was well serviced with plenty of gourmet food and drinks stands, which over looked the main performance area. The sun beamed down on this beautiful location all day and as daytime changed to night, the wind made the ground dance with more loose hay swirling around than a Texan homestead.
By choosing to stay the night in Rockin’ Vans Adventurer, we got all the perks of staying in the comfort of your own home but bang in the middle of a buzzing festival. The Adventurer is a spacious; (incredible comfy) six berth motor home with a bathroom and shower, bright kitchen and dining area and additional storage space. It is equipped with all the handy kitchen appliances and modern conveniences you can think of and very importantly, easy to drive and park with a high resolution reversing camera.
Whether you are planning a camping trip similar to this one or looking for a quiet spot in a remote part of the highlands to unwind, Rockin’ Vans Campervans will make your trip a sure bet in terms of safety, comfort and style.
