Our Huts are located within the Moss Wood area of Bute Forest - a mixed birch and alder wood that extends up the hillside to the west of the A886 that connects the Rhubodach Ferry to Port Bannatyne and Rothesay. Moss Wood has a range of facilities. Park on the shore-side where the coast can be enjoyed or at the main entrance, and take a walk up through Moss Wood along the Poetry Trail. A steep walk in places, the Poetry Trail is a loop punctuated with places to stop and read, to stop and think. Read nature poetry from throughout the ages, stop at the Blether Stane, or taking the spur to the Viewing Point back south across the Kyles. Moss Wood connects to the West Island Way – take the Poetry Trail and the spur to the Viewing Point – and then take the Stag’s Trod further up (steeply) till you reach the West Island Way. From there, head south towards Port Bannatyne or north along the boundary of the Community Forest. From the viewing point, you can also explore interesting heritage features such as the old WW2 bunker, kayak shelter, Balnakailly settlement, and the SSSI oak woodland.

Mountainous glamping near Alloa guide

Overview

Just a stone’s throw from Stirling, the small town of Alloa is a hit with fans of Scottish history who come to admire the medieval Alloa Tower, Scotland’s largest and oldest keep. From the tower visitors can enjoy views of the Firth of Forth and continue on the Tower Trail through the area. Several golf courses are dotted around the town and Alloa also puts visitors within easy reach of the Ochill Hills and Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. The area is a handy base for outdoor enthusiasts who have multiple camping options including well-appointed caravan parks and safari tents.

Where to go

Ochil Hills

Just to the north of Alloa, the long range of the Ochill Hills offers a beautiful setting for hillwalking and multiple summits to climb, including many over 2,000 feet (610 metres). The views of the hills are the top draw at The Woods Caravan Park, less than a 10-minute drive from Alloa. The site has a tranquil location and pitches for tents and tourers.

Gartmorn Dam

Five miles (eight kilometres) north of Alloa, Gartmorn Dam is Scotland’s oldest reservoir and is located on a nature reserve that is an important site for migratory wildfowl and offers several walking routes. Set on a working farm, Dam View offers glamping experiences in its safari tents lodges.

Stirling

Eight miles (13 kilometres) west of Alloa, the city of Stirling is steeped in history and is a must-visit for its beautifully preserved Old Town and National Wallace Monument. Within walking distance of the Monument and the Ochill Hills, family-run Witches Craig Caravan Park has pitches for tents, caravans and motorhomes. 

When to go

Alloa and the surrounding Clackmannanshire and Stirlingshire areas are at their best in the summer months when the weather is warmer (though rarely hot) and daylight hours are long. That’s peak season, however, which may mean booked-up sites, especially during the school holidays in July and August. September or October are good alternatives for enjoying the area with fewer crowds and rich autumnal foliage. Winter visitors will contend with cold conditions and short daylight hours, but beautiful, crisp landscapes.

Know before you go

  • Wild camping is possible throughout Scotland but campers are required to adhere closely to the Scottish Outdoor Access Code.
  • Scottish weather is always changeable, even in summer. Come prepared with warm, waterproof clothing.
  • There are plenty of well-stocked supermarkets in Alloa. For camping gear, head for Stirling.
