2017 Camping Registration Begins Monday January 23rd at 10:00am!

Home / Blog / 2017 Camping Registration Begins Monday January 23rd at 10:00am!

At last! Our new and improved website is ready to take campsite reservations, beginning MONDAY JANUARY 23rd 2017 at 10:00am!

The new campsite reservation system is a self-serve function that allows you to view and reserve on-site campsites *in real time* for the 2017 Fergus Scottish Festival and Highland Games.


Here’s how it works:

  • Visit our Camping Registration page on Monday, January 23rd, 2017 beginning at 10:00am!
  • Click on Camping Registration, then Get Tickets
  • An interactive map of the Festival Camping Grounds will open that allows you to scroll up and down to view and select all Serviced, and Unserviced sites
  • You will have the opportunity to view all available sites (GREEN) on an interactive map and click to place a hold on your chosen location (will show BLUE – Added to Cart – on your screen; BLACK – Reserved – on other people’s screen)
  • You will then have 15 minutes to complete your online registration
  • Click the Add to Cart button to see your total and complete payment transaction
  • Once completed, your reserved site will turn RED on the map and will not be available to other campers.
  • Upon completion of your transaction, a receipt will be emailed to you shortly after your payment is finalized with your transaction details.
  • Sorry, NO REFUNDS.
  • *Please Note: there will be many people accessing the reservation page at the same time; the reservation software will place a hold on a first-come-first-serve basis. The availability of sites on the site map / site selection page is only accurate to the time that you displayed the page. Remember you only have 15 minutes to complete your transaction once you’ve selected your sites; keep an eye on the countdown clock on the top right-hand corner of your screen!

 2017 Fee Schedule:

* Note: 2017 prices have been changed to include ALL taxes and fees; no increase in rates from last year! Final price includes:

  • Unserviced Sites: $145 (includes all taxes and fees)
  • Serviced Sites: $175 (includes all taxes and fees)
  • Customer must purchase 1 adult Festival weekend pass at time of campsite reservation
  • $10 per additional car in designated parking area for the Festival weekend (first car included in campsite fee)

Check-in and Check-out Times:
