The Loft Glamping & Camping

12 units · Motorhomes, Tents5 acres · Kinloss, Scotland
The Loft Glamping & Camping is situated at East Grange Farm, Kinloss, Moray. It 's a working farm that has evolved over the years to include Wigwam Glamping and Camping for campervans, motorhomes and tents. A number of the old farm buildings are also perfectly appointed as venue spaces for Weddings, Events and Workshops. 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 good number of electric tent pitches. Unfortunately we do not take bookings for caravans. Onsite, we also have Original 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!

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.

Campsites with fishing near Tomintoul guide

Overview

Lying on the northern slopes of the Cairngorms mountains range, within the Cairngorms National Park, Tomintoul has the distinction of being the highest village in the Highlands. It’s home to the sprawling Glenlivet Estate, which has a mountain biking centre, and the perfect base for exploring the spectacular surrounding scenery that defines this corner of Scotland. Those setting up camp nearby can enjoy close proximity to mountain trails, secluded lochs and dense, ancient forest, and can enjoy a range of outdoor activities, from hiking, climbing and kayaking to white water rafting, skiing and snowboarding. 

Where to go

Around Town

In the middle of the village, Tomintoul Bowling Club is open to members of the public to bowl on Scotland’s highest bowling green. The bowling club also runs a small campsite with a handful of pitches for caravans and motorhomes, all hard standing and with hook ups. Also on Tomintoul’s Main Street, The Smuggler’s Hostel has tent pitches. Heading just north of Tomintoul, the small settlement of Fodderletter is home to the adults-only glamping spot, Old Pine Yurt. 

Aviemore

The Highland resort town of Aviemore is the region’s main hub and packed full of amenities and outdoor outfitters. A peaceful getway from the buzz of town, but still within walking distance, Oakwood Camping and Caravan is in a quiet, wooded area and has hard standing pitches for caravans and motorhomes, as well as three small tent areas. Weary travellers can also opt for a heated pod at Eriskay B&B and Glamping.

Loch Morlich

Around a 40-minute drive west of Tomintoul, the freshwater Loch Morlich is a popular spot for kayaking, sailing and windsurfing. On the edge of the loch, Glenmore Campsite has pitches for tents, caravans, campervans and motorhomes.

When to go

The Cairngorms is a year-round destination, though most visitors arrive in summer to take advantage of the long daylight hours and relatively warm weather. Spring and summer are best for enjoying water sports and hiking in the area, although you may have to contend with crowded trails and booked up sites in the peak season. Those who are planning to enjoy winter sports should aim for late February through March when the snowfall is heaviest.

Know before you go

  • If planning to wild camp, be sure to follow the Scottish Outdoor Access Code.
  • The weather in Scotland is predictably unpredictable, even in summer. Come prepared with warm, waterproof clothing and sturdy footwear.
  • Small biting midges are a common summertime nuisance in the Scottish Highlands. It’s a good idea to bring insect repellent.
  • While you can get to Tomintoul by public bus, it can be time consuming. Having your own transport is preferable. Public transport is more reliable in and around Aviemore.
