Meeting Place and Check-In

Whether driving, flying or taking public transport, you will head north from the Glasgow or Edinburgh area, or south from Inverness to get to the start at Blair Atholl. The postcode for the site is PH18 5TL.

 

Travelling by train or by bus 

Blair Atholl station is a five minute walk from the Classic UK campsite in the grounds of Blair Castle, which will be open ahead of the event. The station is on the main line from Perth to Inverness and there are about eight trains that stop at Blair Atholl every day.

 

Travelling by car

Head into Blair Atholl from the A9 and follow the signs for the Fjällräven Classic UK, in the grounds of Blair Castle. There will be a dedicated field for parking, which can also be used for overnight camping on Wednesday 8th July.

 

Please follow the instructions of our event officials and park as directed. All cars must be removed by 10pm on Sunday 12th July at the latest.

 

The Classic UK basecamp in the grounds of Blair Castle is where you check-in and receive your map, Trekking Pass, trash bag, food and gas for the trek. This is also where you can leave any extra luggage you would like us to transport to the finish at Glenmore Lodge.

 

If you’re feeling hungry, you can grab a bite to eat or something to drink from The Tullibardine Restaurant in the castle or visit one of the cafes and restaurants in Blair Atholl. If you’ve forgotten any equipment or simply fancy some retail therapy, you can also visit the Fjällräven mini-store in the grounds of Blair Castle.
