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.

The Fauld Farm on the Isle of Mull

1 unit · Motorhome, Tent50 acres · Tobermory, Scotland
The Fauld is a small hill farm located close to Tobermory in the north-east of the stunning Isle of Mull in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland. In total, the land comprises around 150 acres - although most of this area tends to be grazed by our Highland ponies and Shetland/Cheviot sheep. In spring and summer, there are wild flowers and birds galore, and bracing fresh air is on tap all year round - as are the spectacular coastal views from the top of the hills. The farm lies within walking distance of the iconic and colourful fishing port of Tobermory, which offers a range of shops, cafes and pubs - as well as being home to the Tobermory Distillery at Ledaig. If you have a car, we can offer off-road parking for a couple of vehicles, and we also have parking space for two campervans (though we do not have water or electricity connections yet). PS: You are advised to come equipped for camping in wet conditions whatever the season - although we promise that the weather can be lovely too! We look forward to welcoming responsible, country-loving campers to The Fauld :-)

Camping in Lochaber Geopark guide

Overview

Stretching all the way from Rannoch Moor in the south to Glen Garry in the north, and from Loch Laggan in the east to the Small Isles of Eigg, Muck, Rum and Canna in the west, Lochaber Geopark is home to some of Scotland’s most spectacular scenery and some of the world’s most fascinating geology. Thousands of years of volcanic and glacial activity has created the geopark’s famous sites, including the volcanic rings of Ardnamurchan, the Ben Nevis Caldera and the Parallel roads of Glen Roy. Outdoor adventurers will find plenty to do here, surrounded by the UK’s highest mountains and deepest lochs: mountain climbing, skiing, biking and paddling are all popular activities.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. As a well-trafficked part of Scotland, sites can be booked up, especially in July and August. Make your reservations as soon as you know your dates.
  2. Campers typically arrive in the late afternoon or evening. Get the best pick of pitches by arriving earlier.

When to go

For long daylight hours; your best chances of getting some sunny days, and for enjoying outdoor activities, May through September is the best period to visit. To avoid crowds, aim to visit outside of the peak months of July and August. Outside of spring and summer, you will have fewer campsite options, as most are open seasonally, and may experience disruption to your travel plans (especially ferries) due to inclement weather.

Know before you go

  • If you choose to wild camp, be sure to follow the Scottish Outdoor Access Code.
  • Biting midges are a nuisance in the summer: bring repellent and long sleeves.
  • Following the Rock Routes is a great way to see some of the best viewpoints in Lochaber. The Lochaber Geotrails highlights six of the most interesting geological points.
