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.

Mountain campsites near Bonnybridge guide

Overview

In the heart of Central Scotland, near Falkirk, the small town of Bonnybridge lies north of the Forth and Clyde Canal. The town has a sheltered location in the valley of Bonny Water, a tributary of the River Carron which runs through the town. A turfed Roman fort, the UNESCO-listed Antonine Wall runs along the high ground just south of Bonnybridge, and you can take a short walk by a stretch that includes the remains of Rough Castle Roman Fort. Bonnybridge also has an odd claim to fame: it’s the UFO capital of Scotland. 

Where to go

Around Town

To the west of town, Bonnyfield Nature Reserve is home to a diversity of flora and fauna, including the rare Burnet Moth. The reserve also lies close to the John Muir Way long-distance walking route. Just a few minutes’ drive south of the reserve, Bonnybridge Eco Camping and Glamping has tent pitches, as well as bell tents and a glamping pod for rent.

Falkirk

A 10-minute drive east of Bonnybridge, Falkirk is known for its two engineering marvels, the 98-foot- (30-metre-) high equestrian sculptures named the Kelpies, and the Falkirk Wheel, the world’s first rotating boat lift. The Falkirk wheel links the Union and Forth and Clyde Canals, and you can experience it by taking a boat trip. On a working farm in a rural location, the Wheel Caravan Park has tents pitches as well as static caravans for hire.

Campsie Fells

A 45-minute drive west of Bonnybridge, the gently rolling hills of the Campsie Fells are popular with hillwalkers. You can access to the hills from Campsie Glen Holiday Park, which has pitches for tents, motorhomes and caravans, as well as glamping pods, lodges with hot tubs and static caravans for hire.

When to go

For enjoying long days that you can pack full of activities—and for your best chance of good weather—visiting between May and August is your best bet. This is also the busiest tourist season throughout Scotland, however, so it's a good idea to make reservations in advance, especially during the school summer holidays in July and early August. September is a good alternative for fewer crowds and a still pleasant climate. 

Know before you go

  • Not all campsites are open year-round: check opening dates before travelling.
  • If choosing to wild camp, be sure to adhere to the Scottish Outdoor Access Code.
  • There are plenty of shops in town for stocking up on the essentials.
  • Local buses can get you to most places of interest. The closest train station is in Falkirk, a 25-minute bus journey away.
