Tunes By The Dunes

Event info

In 2022 North Coast Entertainment’s is bringing you something very (very) special. Encompassing some of Scotland’s biggest and most highly renowned traditional and celtic acts, as well as a spectacular location - Tunes by the Dunes is going to be the ultimate end to summer.


Wheelchair access will be available, along with venue seating, and limited accessible parking. For more information or to make special arrangements please contact Martin Nicolson or Iain Mackay.


Set just beside the Dunnet Head peninsula, overlooking the sandy dunes of Dunnet Bay and the jurassic Scottish coastline, we really are set in beauty. Within a few miles radius you can find hidden beaches, brochs, lochs, distilleries, forests and even a royal residence!


Car parking is available adjacent to the event venue. There is no campsite or overnight motorhome parking at the venue, but Dunnet Bay Caravan Club Site is only moments away.


Dunnet Bay is just fifteen minutes away from Thurso and and thirty from Wick - both of which are well served by public transport links. Reaching the event from these towns can be easily done by referring to the below directory:

The festival grounds (Ham Park) lies just beside the A836 and parking will be available North of the village.

There are a multitude of local taxi firms that can cater to your needs, it is advised you book these in advance. You can view a list of local taxi numbers on one of our recent Facebook posts by clicking here.

Stagecoach Highland offers a semi-regular bus service to Dunnet however it is North Coast Entertainment’s intention to operate a bus service from both Thurso and Wick. This is to ensure local bus services do not become overwhelmed and patrons arrive on time.
