TRAIN INFO

For the first time ever RockNess has teamed up with the Year of Creative Scotland for a specially chartered train, the RockNess Express, that will pick up passengers from London, Birmingham, Derby, York and Newcastle before dropping them off in Inverness on the Thu 7 Jun for priority access to the site before anyone else arrives, before returning home on Mon 11 Jun. At a price of £225 including VIP entry to the festival, or £100 upgrade if you already have your RockNess tickets, this is a cheap and convenient way to get to the Highlands from the rest of the UK. But it’s no ordinary train as Bearded Kitten will be playing host with carriage games, a fully stocked bar, Silent Disco played through headsets, magic shows, karaoke trolley, goodie bags and more.
