The Highlands’ Covid-safe Glamping Festival

Capers festivalCapers in Cannich is billed as Scotland’s first festival created in response to Covid-19. Planned for 28-31 May, the exclusive outdoor glamping festival will be held at Invercannich Farm in Cannich.

Complete with social distancing guidelines and other coronavirus protection measures, numbers will be limited to 200 people and each ‘bubble’ will have its own luxury bell tent, garden area and welcome pack.

Depending on demand and the easing of restrictions over the summer, the capacity may be increased to up to 500, while up to eight weekends may be staged if the concept takes off.

Capers in Cannich has been created by Karl Falconer, who runs Highland Hog Roasts at the farm. He said: “It’s a very special moment to officially launch our new exclusive glamping festival concept, designed especially in response to Covid-19, one year on from when the country first went into lockdown.

“The Capers experience is all about being able to relax in a safe environment, catch up with a small bubble of friends or family while observing guidelines, have a few drinks, some good food and enjoy the entertainment and the magic of a live event. Something we’ve all been missing.”

Priced at £205 per person, based on a shared bell tent, festivalgoers can order food and drink for delivery to their space via a phone app.
