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!

Caravan campsites near Dunkeld with showers guide

Overview

Sitting on the banks of the River Tay, the picturesque Perthshire town of Dunkeld is dominated by its Dunkeld Cathedral. Once you’ve explored the town centre, filled with quaint whitewashed stone houses, you’ll find lots of walking opportunities in the area’s forested hills, as well as mountain bike trails that take you uphill and along the river. Visitors can also kayak or go stand-up paddleboarding in the river or in nearby lochs and spot ospreys in the Loch of the Lowes wildlife reserve. The town is the ideal base for exploring nearby forests and is also within easy reach of the Cairngorms National Park and cities of Perth and Dundee.

Where to go

The Hermitage

Home to tall Douglas firs, The Hermitage’s main attraction is the Black Linn waterfall, which is famously best seen through Ossian’s Hall of Mirrors, a folly created with mirrors, sliding panels, and paintings that creates a dramatic view of the teeming falls. The Hermitage is within walking distance of Dunkeld and has a walking trail that runs for 1.5 miles (2.4 kilometres). Just outside, the tranquil Inver Mill Farm Holiday Park has pitches for tents and tourers.

Tay Forest Park

Spread to the north of The Hermitage is the Craigvinean section of Tay Forest Park, which is spread over several sections of Highland Perthshire. A couple of trails lead through the forest to viewpoints for spectacular views of the River Tay and to a replica of the ruined Torryvald folly deep in the forest.

Pitlochry

A 20-minute drive north of Dunkeld, and mid-way along the route to the Cairngorms National Park, Pitlochry is one of Scotland’s most beautiful small towns. There’s lots of opportunities for hiking, cycling, golfing and fishing in the surrounding countryside. A few minutes north, Faskally Caravan Park has pitches for caravans and motorhomes.

When to go

Summer is the most popular time to visit Dunkeld and the surrounding Highland Perthshire area, but, thanks to the town’s central location, the season does bring crowds and booked-up campsites. If planning to visit in the summer, try to avoid travelling during the school holidays in July and August. Autumn is a good alternative: the forest will be rich with colour and you can spot salmon leaping in The Hermitage’s Black Linn Falls.

Know before you go

  • Wild camping is legal in Scotland as long as you follow the Scottish Outdoor Access Code.
  • Biting midges are a common nuisance during Highland summers. Don’t forget to pack repellant and long sleeves.
  • There is a train station in Dunkeld with service to Perth, Pitlochry, Aviemore and Inverness.
  • Dunkeld has a small supermarket, but for bigger purchases, you’d be better heading to Perth.
