Highland & Transylvania Glamp. Pod

2 units · Glamping1 acre · Roy Bridge, Scotland
Glamping pods in a large garden alongside the river Roy A 10-minute drive from Loch Lochy and 20 minutes from Fort William Seating in the garden and kitchen and ensuites provided Right on the side of the river Roy, the Highland and Transylvania Glamping Pods is a properly cosy base in the Scottish Highlands. The large garden has a terrace, river views and a seating area, but perhaps the best bit is that it’s located a short drive from lochs, glens, rivers and long-distance trails. What might you get up to? Climbing, hill walking, mountain biking and water-based sports are all on the agenda in this area, but especially in Fort William (20 minutes’ drive) and Lochaber, which have been ascribed as a capital for outdoor adventures. Scotland’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis, is also 20 minutes’ drive away. Even closer is Loch Lochy (10 minutes’ drive), which has access to part of the 79-mile Great Glen Way (around 10 minutes’ drive). From Fort William, start off on another long-distance trail, the West Highland Way, which stretches for 96 miles across the banks of Loch Lomond and ends in Milngavie. The pods here have been named after the places where the owners spent their childhood and continue to live. Feel free to stop off while travelling to or from the Isle of Skye (two hours and 10 minutes) or stay for a good while… Fort William’s centre has a splendid selection of pubs, restaurants, shops and a bus and rail station. Plus, there are lots of links courses for golfers a day trip away, like the Royal Dornoch (two hours and 25 minutes). Both pods have a small double bed (a bit narrower than a standard double) with all bed linen provided. The kitchen areas are equipped with a fridge, microwave, kettle and toaster (crockery, cutlery and towels are handily provided). To keep things nice and tasty, the pods are also well insulated. The patio doors and the rear opening window are both double glazed and there are electric radiators to inject some extra heat into the kitchen and living area.

Glamping pods near Kinloch Rannoch guide

Overview

Formed largely after the Jacobite Rebellion in the 1700s, the settlement of Kinloch Rannoch is accessible only by a few meandering minor roads leading in from Blair Atholl, along Loch Tummel and Aberfeldy. The village sits on the banks of Loch Rannoch, behind which stretches the infamous Rannoch Moor. The pointed tip of Schiehallion, the mountain that helped scientists calculate the weight of the world, is a beacon for many munro-baggers. The steep slopes of Craig Varr begin just behind Kinloch Rannoch, offering unbeatable views from the top. A campground on the south shores of Loch Rannoch, and more toward Loch Tummel, provide a peaceful retreat from the busier parts of Perthshire. 

Where to go

Loch Tummel and Loch Rannoch

Forest and lochside cycles are a popular way to experience the beauty of Loch Rannoch and Loch Tummel, 11 kilometres west. The Queen’s View toward the north end of Loch Tummel offers unbeatable views as far as Rannoch Moor. Short walks from the village take you along The Clan Trail and to MacGregor’s Cave, a hiding place for the outlaw Rob Roy. At Loch Rannoch and Dunalastair Water, trout fishing is king.

Glen Lyon

The “longest, loneliest and loveliest glen in Scotland,” as described by Sir Walter Scott, runs for more than 50 km roughly between Keltneyburn and Bridge of Orchy. In Fortingall, what’s thought to be one of the oldest living things in Europe, the Fortingall Yew, sits in the village churchyard as it has for around 3,000 years.

Rannoch Station

At the edge of the vast and brooding Rannoch Moor stands Rannoch Station, well known as one of the most remote train stations in Britain. It services the West Highland Line running from Glasgow to Mallaig via Fort William through some of the most iconic scenery in Scotland. On the other side, walkers following the 155-km West Highland Way crest the far edge of the heathland on their way to Kingshouse.

When to go

Perthshire’s summer crowds may be less noticeable in off-the-beaten-path villages like Kinloch Rannoch. Still, popular routes like Schiehallion will mean the roads and tracks in the area will be busier. Visiting in September and October may mean having the open country more to yourself. In May, a 130-km cycling event, Etape Caledonia, passes along the Loch Rannoch road.

Know before you go

  • Weather in the remote Rannoch region can change abruptly, and it’s important to plan your excursions accordingly. 
  • If you see tour companies pulling off beside a hill outside of Kinloch Rannoch, it’s likely filled with Outlander fans, stopping to visit the location of the fictional stone circle of Craigh na Dun, a centrepoint in the television drama. 
  • The West Highland Line runs from Glasgow to Rannoch Station, from where a bus service connects to Kinloch Rannoch, but it’s important to check timetables before you travel.
