The camping field
There are three villages, each village is distinguished by its colour – red, blue and yellow. The villages will take part in competitions through the weekend and work together to be the winning village.
Groups may wish to bring clothing, flags (or even tents) in their village colour!
Groups must provide their own camping equipment (including tents). You are welcome to cook within the camping area. Please be aware that space for camping is limited. Larger groups may bring a small gazebo if required, however please do not bring canvas marquees or similar. Open camp fires are NOT permitted within the camping area. Small BBQs may be used.
A refuse area will be located by the villages, please make sure all rubbish is disposed of here.
Arrival and departure times
Arrival time is from 4:00pm on Friday. Upon arrival please check in with the welcome team at the main gate, or if you are arriving on Saturday please find a member of the site team who will be able to assist you (this is important because you will need to know where to camp according to your allocated village). Departure is from 3:00pm on Monday.
Please note we will be operating a one way system, with traffic flowing through the main driveway and exiting out the rear gate.
Food will be served 3 times a day (hot/cold breakfast, lunch and dinner) at set times from the dining room in the main house (there will be a non-vegetarian and vegetarian option served). In your welcome pack you will be given a preferred time to sit down for each meal, this has been put in place to prevent overcrowding and large queues at meal times. This year we won’t be using meal vouchers, you will just need your wristband.
The catered menu for Unite 2018 will be available soon.
If you require first aid attention please make yourself known to a member of staff with a radio or go to The Café.
Drugs, solvent and alcohol free zone
Unite operates a strict NO drugs, solvents or alcohol policy throughout the entire site.
Unite is a cash only event, there will be no opportunity for cash back or card payments while on site.
In the evening
After midnight young people should be in an organised activity or in their own tent.
These must be switched off when inside any venues on-site. Mobile phone charging is possible at The Café for a small fee.
A strict NO smoking policy operates in all buildings, venues and the camping areas. It is only permitted in other outside areas.
These MUST be worn at all times and will be checked regularly by the site team. This is to ensure only paying guests are on site. Broken wristbands can be replaced for a small fee and anyone without a wristband will be required to purchase one at The Café.
Limited parking will be available on site for minibuses and cars only. The majority of parking will be designated as “for event duration” and unless agreed on arrival you should assume that you will not be able to remove your vehicles part way through the event. Coaches and other large vehicles will not be able to access the site.
Please note that the decisions relating to parking may need to be changed at short notice if bad weather is being experienced or is forecast. It is hoped that the availability of Friday to Sunday parking will be a great help to groups.
The Boys’ Brigade is not responsible for cars or any valuables held within them.
Playing of loud music is not permitted on site. This should be kept to a minimum late at night, especially in the camping areas. Also, please avoid any unnecessary noise before 7:30am!
Loss/damage to property
Any items of lost property should be handed in at The Café. Unite and The Boys’ Brigade cannot be held responsible for any loss or damage to property and/or vehicles.
These can be purchased from The Café for a small fee.
Showers are free of charge: For over 18s in the Thurso Centre and for under 18s in the Sports Hall.
