By Car

There are no pay and display car parks in Kinlochleven, and any 'street parking' will be restricted and monitored by local authorities during the event. Therefore, we highly recommend you pre-book a parking space in the official event car park, or a seat on the official event shuttle from Fort William (stopping in Ballachulish and Glencoe Village). Car parking will be sold on a first-come first-served basis, and we cannot guarantee spaces on the day.
