Hints and tips

Before you get there:
If you are planning to camp, there is a family area available. Camping space is limited, so book your camping vouchers in advance to secure your pitch. See the camping page for details of campsite facilities.

Remember that the weather in Scotland is unpredictable and children who are wet through or sunburnt won’t be happy! Pack plenty of sunscreen, sunhats and warm, waterproof clothing.

At The Outsider:
Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times – it only takes a minute for them to get lost in the crowd.

Make sure your children know what to do if they get separated from you. Remind them never to go with strangers or people they don’t know without telling you first. Tell them that if they get lost, they should only ask for help from a security steward, someone with a radio, another adult with children or at one of the Information Points.

If you have a mobile phone with you, write your number on your child’s arm with marker pen so that we can contact you easily if they get lost.
