The Loft Glamping & Camping

12 units · Motorhomes, Tents5 acres · Kinloss, Scotland
The Loft Glamping & Camping site is situated at East Grange Farm. This is a working farm that has evolved into a Wigwam Glamping and Campervan and tent camping site and a Venue. 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. Onsite we also have Wigwam cabins which are wooden camping cabins (Pods) that offer all year round protection against the elements. With heating, electricity, fridge, kettle and toasters. 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.

Cleghorn Farm

11 units · Glamping, Tents250 acres · Scotland
CLEGHORN FARM WILL BE CLOSED OVER THE WEEKEND OF 25th-27th AUGUST FOR A FAMILY FUNCTION *PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE ONLY OPEN FOR WEEKEND 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.
