The "wilderness" campsite offers pitches suitable for Tents and small campervans whilst the Stackyard area is suitable for Motorhomes and Mega tents. All motorhome pitches have electrical hook-up and we have a number of electric tent pitches. Unfortunately we do not take caravans.

For those wanting a bit more luxury there are also ensuite Wigwam Cabins onsite with wood fired hot tubs. We welcome families, groups, well behaved dogs and do allow campfires outside the wigwams and at pitches and can provide fire hubs on the campsite (this must be pre-arranged). The Loft Glamping & Camping looks forward to welcoming you throughout the year Please visit our website for availability and to book.

Highland & Transylvania Glamp. Pod

2 units · Glamping1 acre · Roy Bridge, Scotland
Glamping pods in a large garden alongside the river Roy A 10-minute drive from Loch Lochy and 20 minutes from Fort William Seating in the garden and kitchen and ensuites provided Right on the side of the river Roy, the Highland and Transylvania Glamping Pods is a properly cosy base in the Scottish Highlands. The large garden has a terrace, river views and a seating area, but perhaps the best bit is that it’s located a short drive from lochs, glens, rivers and long-distance trails. What might you get up to? Climbing, hill walking, mountain biking and water-based sports are all on the agenda in this area, but especially in Fort William (20 minutes’ drive) and Lochaber, which have been ascribed as a capital for outdoor adventures. Scotland’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis, is also 20 minutes’ drive away. Even closer is Loch Lochy (10 minutes’ drive), which has access to part of the 79-mile Great Glen Way (around 10 minutes’ drive). From Fort William, start off on another long-distance trail, the West Highland Way, which stretches for 96 miles across the banks of Loch Lomond and ends in Milngavie. The pods here have been named after the places where the owners spent their childhood and continue to live. Feel free to stop off while travelling to or from the Isle of Skye (two hours and 10 minutes) or stay for a good while… Fort William’s centre has a splendid selection of pubs, restaurants, shops and a bus and rail station. Plus, there are lots of links courses for golfers a day trip away, like the Royal Dornoch (two hours and 25 minutes). Both pods have a small double bed (a bit narrower than a standard double) with all bed linen provided. The kitchen areas are equipped with a fridge, microwave, kettle and toaster (crockery, cutlery and towels are handily provided). To keep things nice and tasty, the pods are also well insulated. The patio doors and the rear opening window are both double glazed and there are electric radiators to inject some extra heat into the kitchen and living area.

Hillside Meadows

3 units · Glamping, Motorhomes, Tents5 acres · Fraserburgh, Scotland
If you wish to visit the north-east of Scotland with sandy and rocky beaches, magnificent cliffs, old lighthouses and famous whisky distilleries, Hillside Meadows is the place to stay. You can enjoy near wild camping experience provided by hosts Michal and Gosia, who are developing on site fully off-grid permaculture family farm. Don't be surprised to be welcomed to your temporary home by a wired-haired dachshund Dubby or woken up in the morning by Pablo the Cockrell. There are usually fresh quail and hen eggs available. The site is handily located just off the A981 Strichen-Memsie road. It makes the site easily accessible for camper vans and caravans owners. There might be some noise from passing traffic, but it’s hardly a distraction from your surroundings, rolling hills, open fields and woodlands. It goes without saying that our 5-acres site is ideal for self-sufficient campers. There are just a handful of pitches, well distanced from each other, tucked among the high grass meadows, which gives campers plenty of space and sense of privacy. Park up or pitch your tent. Then you can just relax and concentrate on the important stuff – like getting that campfire going! The basic facilities, including composting toilet, tap water and shower, are available on site if needed. Our quirky camper van Alaska is ready to use as additional accommodation here on site, ideal for one person, couples or families up to 5. Just 3 miles away from our site lies Fraserburgh, a little coastal town with a sandy beach, Museum of Scottish Lighthouses, as well as a range of convenience stores, shops, cafés, restaurants and bars. Within 5 miles from our site, you'll also find Waters of Philorth Nature Reserve, New Aberdour beach, Rattray old lighthouse, Strichen stone circle, Aden Country Park and more.

Camping in Black Isle guide

Overview

Contrary to its name, the Black Isle is a fertile peninsula, surrounded by the Cromarty Firth to the north, the Beauly Firth to the south and the Moray Firth to the east. It’s a land rich in history and beauty and is an enchanting setting for adventures such as dolphin-watching, hiking, mountain biking and horse riding. The ever-popular North Coast 500 driving route goes through the Black Isle, so it can get busy in summer. Spring can be a good alternative to a summer visit as you’ll be able to dodge crowds, enjoy long days and spot dolphins. The Black Isle’s few organised campsites are clustered around Fortrose and Rosemarkie.

Where to go

Fortrose

Fortrose is the largest town in the Black Isle and has a beautiful stretch of beach. Close by, Learnie Red Rock has graded forest trails for mountain bikers. Campsites around Fortrose come with views over the Moray Firth.

Rosemarkie

At Chanonry Point, between Fortrose and Rosemarkie, bottlenose dolphins can often be seen frolicking in the Moray Firth. Pictish kings once ruled this land and today you can still see thousand-year-old carved Pictish stones in Rosemarkie at the Groam House Museum. Behind the village you’ll find Fairy Glen, a wooded glen with waterfalls. You can pitch a tent on the shores of the Moray Firth here.

Cromarty

On the tip of the peninsula, at the mouth of the Cromarty Firth, Cromarty is the Highlands' best preserved historic town, home to attractive Georgian merchant houses and whitewashed fishermen’s cottages. In the summer, you can take the tiny ferry over to Nigg across the Cromarty Firth.

Udale Bay

The second of the RSPB’s Black Isle reserves (after Fairy Glen), the tranquil, intertidal Udale Bay is home to thousands of waders, ducks, geese and fishing osprey from late summer until April. Visit in Autumn to see wintering birds, including thousands of pink-footed geese, arriving from Iceland, Greenland and beyond.
