No need for a tent for me for Rock Ness.

K - do you normally drive there? Has anyone ever got the bus? Does it really take 45 minutes like it says on the website? I'd be quicker walking...

The bus from Inverness will take about half an hour, as the traffic is pretty busy.  Its a frequent shuttle bus, but you'll probably need tickets up front.
I'm camping this year for a change so taking the car.

Are you going?

No, thought I'd ask about buses just to make some conversation.

Rockness this weekend. Boost!

Anyone know how thorough they are with their searches at the gate? i.e. how can a get some booze in with me??

Forecast for Inverness this weekend looks really good.

Are you camping?  You can take as much booze as you can carry into the campsite, but you'll have difficulty getting any into the arena (whether you are camping or not).

Yeah I am camping. Thank feck they have relaxed the "one trip from the carpark" rule. What crazy mofo thought that'd be a good idea!?

Will maybe try taping a bag of wine around my waist or something!

You're not allowed to go back to your car until you leave though, so I'm not sure if that means one trip or not.

They've relaxed that, you can go back to your car all day Friday, and until lunchtime on Saturday.  (see news page on Rockness website)

Think their licence conditions this year has been affected by the boy that died in the car park last year.

Looking forward to this weekend, if I get off the rig on time (due home today but doubt I'll even get off tomorrow) - Got Neil Diamond on Thursday as a warm up for rockness too.   :hammer:

Where can I find some sort of timetable for Rockness? Are these usually available before hand like TITP ones seem to be or do you just have to get one there??

Probably won't appear before the event but I'm keeping an eye out.
You might have to cough up for a timetable to put round your neck (£6 last year).

Lots of folk heading to Rock Ness judging by the increased traffic when I was out in the car earlier.

Better not be raining Sunday. :thumbsup:

Rockness was brilliant, and the weather was fantastic.

I saw heaps of bands.   Stand outs for me were Digitalism, The Orb, Soulwax, Does It Offend You Yeah? and CSS.  Pete and the Pirates were good.
Its a cracking hassle-free festival, probably the best in Scotland. (miles better than T in the Park for location, atmosphere, Ned count, drink and food options).

CSS:


The Orb:


Real Ale Bar:

They were playing but clashed with somebody else I wanted to see (Digitalism).  I don't think they are my cup of tea after all!
