Highland music enthusiasts can now plan their Belladrum 2024 adventure with ease as shuttle bus tickets have officially hit the market. On Thursday, November 9, 2023, D&E Coaches announced the availability of shuttle bus services to and from the Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival, set to run from various locations across Inverness and Ross-shire.
After witnessing extensive traffic queues at the 2023 event, festival-goers can now opt for the convenience of shuttle buses, aiming to alleviate traffic congestion around the festival site. Both return and single tickets are on offer, providing flexible travel options for attendees. The tickets can be purchased, and a detailed timetable can be found on the D&E Coaches official website.
Amy Nicholson, Director at D&E Coaches, expressed her excitement about the partnership, stating, “We’re delighted to be partnering with Belladrum again this year to offer shuttle buses to and from the festival site from across Inverness and Ross-shire. Shuttle buses provide a convenient and easy way to get to and from the festival – and help reduce the high levels of traffic faced by festival-goers this year.”
In addition to the convenience factor, these shuttle buses contribute to environmental sustainability by encouraging shared transport, thereby reducing emissions and promoting cleaner air in the Highlands.
Festival shuttle buses from Ross-shire are set to make stops at Dingwall, Maryburgh, Conon Bridge, Muir of Ord, Beauly High Street, and Beauly Campsite. Meanwhile, Inverness shuttles will also stop at Bunchrew and Inchmore, ensuring comprehensive coverage for festival attendees.
Naomi Hollas, Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival Coordinator, expressed her delight about the collaboration, emphasising the festival’s commitment to offering a safe, convenient, and sustainable travel option to attendees.
