Final Info - Skyline Scotland 2022
We look forward to seeing you at Skyline Scotland 2022 this weekend
We are happy to confirm that we are going ahead as planned.
Be ready for race day!
Here is everything you need to know about Skyline Scotland® 2022...
The Event Village
The Event Village is outside the Ice Factor in the centre of Kinlochleven.
Here you will find registration, the start / finish line, the prize ceremony stage, the big screen TV, catering options and a host of exhibitors to meet!
The Ice Factor
Event Parking is right next to the Ice Factor in the centre of Kinlochleven - see map above.
Within this area, there will be a short stay space to use if you are simply turning up to register for your race. There will also be a specific camper van area for those with a camper van pass - who will be allowed to stay overnight.
Car parking tickets are now sold out and limited numbers of camper van passes are still available to purchase here.
It is clear parking will be very tight at the event. Please help us and your fellow participants by:
- Car sharing wherever possible
- Filling your vehicle
- Using our shuttle bus service from Fort William, Ballachulish and Glencoe Village
- There is still some very limited buy-on-the-day parking available but please don’t risk it and make a plan to share transport with your running friends.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation!
Please do not park on residential streets in Kinlochleven. This really annoys the local residents. There are various parking restrictions in place in Kinlochleven please respect these. Each year the police tow away many pirate-parked vehicles! Following the above advice will also help us keep a good relationship with the local community.
Pre-book a shuttle bus here - for journeys between Fort William, Ballachulish, Glencoe Village and the Event Village in Kinlochleven.
