The Charcoal Huts - Isle of Bute

2 units · Glamping8 acres · Scotland
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.

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!

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.

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 campfires near Blairgowrie guide

Overview

Lying on the banks of the River Ericht, the Perthshire town of Blairgowrie is the gateway to Glenshee, best-known for its ski centre but also a destination for year-round sports including golfing, mountain biking, abseiling and paragliding. Blairgowrie is also popular with golfers and the River Ericht is known for its excellent salmon fishing. The town is also the starting point for the 64-mile (103-kilometre) circular Cateran Trail that follows the historic drove roads long ago used by cattle rustlers, and the Angus Glens and Cairngorms National Park are also within easy reach. 

Where to go

Blairgowrie

From Blairgowrie’s town centre, you can follow the river 1.5 miles (two kilometres) to the history-soaked waterfalls and woodlands of Cargill’s Leap. In the town centre. Blairgowrie Holiday Park has nightly and seasonal pitches for touring caravans and motorhomes, as well as a handful of lodges with hot tubs.

Glamis

Around a 25-minute drive east, the small village of Glamis is famed for its Glamis Castle, setting for Shakespeare’s Macbeth and a fairytale-like structure of romantic turrets and towers and grand interiors. A five-minute drive north of Glamis Caslte, Drumshademuir Caravan and Camping Park has a selection of glamping pods.

Angus Glens

A favourite destination for hikers, climbers and cyclists, the Angus Glens are home to ten ‘Munros’ (mountains over 3,000 feet). Set in rolling hills, close to the serene Loch of Lintrathen, Nethercraig Holiday Park has pitches for tents, caravans and motorhomes, as well as a handful of glamping options in pods and huts.

When to go

Spring and summer are the best seasons for visiting the area. While days of hot, sunny weather are very much hit and miss, you can be sure of long daylight hours and mild temperatures. To avoid the biggest summertime crowds, try to avoid weekends and the school holidays in July and August. Autumn, though potentially wet and chilly, can be a good alternative: the crowds will have gone and the countryside will be ablaze in rich colours.

Know before you go

  • Wild camping is legal throughout Scotland as long as you follow the Scottish Outdoor Access Code.
  • Most organised campsites in the area are open only seasonally: Check dates if planning to travel outside of peak season.
  • You can reach Blairgowrie by bus from Dundee, which is connected to Glasgow, Edinburgh and beyond by both bus and train. Local buses can get you to most nearby places of interest, but having your own transport is preferable for heading into the Angus Glens.
  • For stocking up on food and camping gear, visit Dundee’s High Street.
