Cleghorn Farm

11 units · Glamping, Tents250 acres · Lanark, Scotland
*PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE ONLY OPEN FOR WEEKEND BOOKINGS FOR CAMPING. THE CABIN IS AVAILABLE FOR MIDWEEK BOOKINGS* Cleghorn Farm is a mixed farm just north east of the market town of Lanark. Comprised of 250 acres of fields and woodland and bounded to the south by Mouse Water, it is a beautiful spot to get away from it all without having to leave it all behind if you don't want to. The fields are grazed and cultivated but the woodlands are much as they were at the end of the last ice age with spectacular walks along Cleghorn Glen with the chance to see badgers, bats, deer and all manner of birds among the towering pine and beech trees. The Mouse Water (pronounced moose) tumbles down along the edge of the farm and has some glorious pools for swimming, shallows for paddling and some spectacular water falls before it joins the River Clyde.

Campsites in Ben Lomond with horseback riding guide

Overview

Scotland’s most southerly Munro (mountain over 3,000 feet), the slopes of Ben Lomond are one of the most popular walking destinations in the whole country. Lying within the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, Ben Lomond makes for an easy day trip from Glasgow and the mountain’s variety of trails makes it suitable for walkers of most experience levels. Experienced climbers can tackle the arduous ascent to the summit, while casual walkers can enjoy a leisurely low-level stroll. While on the slopes, look out for wildlife including ptarmigan, skylarks, black grouse and pine martens.

When to go

You can climb Ben Nevis all year-round, but (even though it is considered fairly easy) only experienced climbers should attempt an ascent in the winter. May through August is the busiest season in Loch Lomond and the Trossachs, which can mean crowded trails and booked-up sites. Early spring is a good time to visit: the biggest crowds (and midges) won’t have arrived and the temperatures should be mild—September is also a good option.

Know before you go

  • The Ranger Centre at Ardess and the information centre at the Rowardennan car park have details on the varied walking routes up and around the mountain. 
  • You can reach Ben Lomond from Rowardennan, on the east shore of Loch Lomond. The nearest bus stop is seven miles away in Balmaha. In summer there is a limited waterbus service directly to Rowardennan from Luss and Tarbet, both of which are on the Glasgow bus route.
  • Conditions on many of the routes are rough underfoot, so proper walking boots should be worn.
  • Whether hiking to the top or exploring the base, be sure to follow the Scottish Outdoor Access Code while visiting
