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.

Cabins near Falkirk with swimming guide

Overview

Almost equidistant to Edinburgh and Glasgow, Falkirk is a hub of Stirlingshire. Nearby are two unusual feats of engineering worth a visit: the Falkirk Wheel, the world’s only rotating boat lift connects the Forth and Clyde with the Union Canal. On the other edge of town, are two 30-metre-high Kelpies, a mythical Scottish river horse. The Central Belt is the most populated region of Scotland, but campers will find quick escapes in all directions. The large town can serve as a jumping-off point to explore The Trossachs and points north, as well as the Scottish Borders, Dumfries and Galloway, and both coasts.

Where to go

Stirlingshire

You can find adventure and Scottish history without even leaving the county. Perched on a hilltop outside Stirling, to the north of Falkirk, is the Wallace Monument, dedicated to the 12th-century figurehead of Scottish freedom, William Wallace. Stirling Castle—one of the most prominent fortifications in the country’s history—is perched atop a rocky outcropping in the city centre. Nearby, tour the battleground of Bannockburn, where Robert the Bruce defeated the English army. Explore these attractions easily in a day, then take your campervan or tent and head toward the Trossachs or north toward Perthshire. 

Fife

A quick drive over either the Kincardine or Forth Bridges from Falkirk is the Kingdom of Fife, offering campers an escape to rolling fields and farmland and a windswept North Sea coast. The popular Fife Coastal Path runs 188 kilometres around Fife through the villages of the East Neuk and the renowned university and golf town, St Andrews. In summer, catch the ferry in Anstruther to the Isle of May, a small nature reserve that guards the entrance to the Firth of Forth and history dating to 2000 BC. 

Loch Lomond and the Trossachs

One of only two national parks in Scotland offers endless adventure and a taste of the wilds of more northerly Scotland. Beautiful stretches of woodland and the southern portion of Scotland’s most famous walking route, the West Highland Way, can be found here. Loch Lomond is Scotland’s largest body of fresh water. For the best views over the park, hike the accessible Munro of Ben Lomond. A shorter climb up Conic HIll just outside of the lochside village of Balmaha gives you an excellent perspective of the boundary fault separating the Highlands and the Lowlands. Campsite and wild camping permit areas are scattered throughout the park. 

When to go

The traditional tourist season for most of Scotland is May through October. During these peak months you’ll enjoy the benefit of extra daylight hours and warmer weather, but book campgrounds well in advance and be prepared to deal with crowds--especially if you’re planning to camp along one of Scotland’s many A-list long-distance trails. In the Central Belt, where you’re never far from a large town, it’s easier to extend your camping adventure later into the shoulder seasons, as long as you’re prepared for any weather. 

Know before you go

  • If camping in the Trossachs, be sure to read up on the National Park’s guidelines on where to pitch your tent. 
  • It’s important to be prepared for any weather in Scotland—basic waterproofs are an essential packing item. 
  • If you’re nearing the west of Scotland in  summer, particularly May and June, it’s best to bring a midge net and spray to keep the tiny biting flies at bay.
