Feel like a highland fling? Then you’d better pack up your kilt and sporran and head out to Boondooma Homestead this weekend for the annual Scots In The Bush Scottish and Celtic Festival.

The three-day event will kick off on Friday and always draws a strong crowd of caravanners out to have a good time and experience something that little bit different.

There’ll be nine bands featured on stage: Ishka Ceilidh Band, Celtic Psychosis, Country Kin, the Leaping Lizards, the Noosa Pipe Band, Darryl Craft, Tartan Time, Celtic Kin and the Rum City Highland Dancers.

There’ll also be Scottish dancing, Scottish-themed stalls and traditional highland games, including tossing the caber.

A licensed bar will be running throughout the event and meals will be available.

Organiser Buddy Thomson said the $50 entry fee per head for the full three days also included bush camping on site.

Non-campers can experience all the fun for just $15 on Friday, $25 on Saturday or $10 on Sunday (children under 14 are free).
