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 Mallaig guide

Overview

The port of Mallaig is often used only as a jumping off point for ferries to the Isle of Skye, the Small Isles, and beyond. Stay a little longer, however, and you’ll find an attractive town where you can soak up the atmosphere of a working fishing port and embark on walks that promise views across the thriving harbor and Loch Nevis to the remote Knoydart Peninsula. Mallaig is also the final stop on the Jacobite Steam Train (better known as the “Harry Potter Train”) route from Fort William.

Where to go

Camusdarach Beach

Between Mallaig and Arisaig along the Road to the Isles, Camusdarach Beach offers white sands and clear waters with great views over the Islands of Eigg, Rum, and the jagged Cuillin Mountains of Skye. This is a great place to base yourself to soak up the scene and enjoy swimming, rock pooling, kayaking, and walking. Set among the seaside scenes and sand dunes, area campsites offer sheltered tent pitches and glamping pods, as well as hard standing pitches for campervans and caravans.

Arisaig

Ten minutes farther south along the Road to the Isles, the little village of Arisaig boasts equally spectacular scenery and provides a good base for exploring the surrounding countryside. North of the village, coastal caravan parks offer grass pitches for tents, as well as spacious hardstanding pitches suitable for caravans, motorhomes, campervans, and trailer tents.

Knoydart

Wild and remote, the Knoydart Peninsula is only accessible by long-distance walk or boat from Mallaig Harbour. Most who make the boat trip only visit for the day to earn bragging rights by stopping in at The Old Forge, famed as Britain’s most remote pub, for a pint or two. Spend the night to tackle the hills and enjoy the tranquility after the daytrippers have gone. Knoydart campsites are commonly set on the beach with views toward the Isle of Rum.

When to go

In the summer months, you’ll find Mallaig bustling with tourists disembarking the Jacobite Steam Train and embarking ferries to the islands. The weather in July and August is as good as it gets in Scotland, but to avoid crowds, consider visiting in off-peak months, such as September or October instead. If planning to travel by ferry, note that rough weather can often force cancellation of services to the Small Isles (especially in winter). 

Know before you go

  • Some campsites in the area are seasonal: check opening dates before travelling.
  • If you choose to wild camp, be sure to adhere to the Scottish Outdoor Access Code. 
  • Mallaig is well connected to Fort William and beyond by bus and train. In summer, booking your journey in advance is advisable.
  • You can easily buy food and camping supplies in Mallaig.
  • Weather is always unpredictable in Scotland. Even in summer, you should bring warm, wet weather gear.
