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.

Mountainous glamping in Tay Forest Park guide

Overview

Tay Forest Park is a network of forests that are home to some of Scotland’s tallest trees. A good place to start is the Queen’s View Visitor Centre, where you can admire the view over Loch Tummel before continuing to nearby Allean Forest, home to a ruined Pictish ring fort. Faskally, near Pitlochry, and Carie, by Loch Rannoch, both offer easy woodland strolls, and Craivinean boasts spectacular views of the River Tay and a folly. You might spot caipercaillie at the fort at Drummond Hill and in Dalerb. While there are no campsites within the park, there are several just outside, including Inver Mill Farm Holiday Park, which has pitches for tents and tourers close to Caivinean.

When to go

Summer is the most popular time to visit the forest park and the surrounding Highland Perthshire area. The season can bring crowds and booked-up campsites so try to avoid travelling during the Scottish school holidays in July and August. Autumn is a very attractive alternative as the forests will be rich with reds and golds. Spring through autumn is the best time for spotting wildlife, such as red squirrels, red deer and the rare capercaillie.

Know before you go

  • The main visitor centre is at Queen’s View. There you can get information, buy souvenirs and have a bite to eat in the coffeeshop.
  • Be sure to follow the Scottish Outdoor Access Code while out and about.
  • There is a bus stop at Kenmore, which is a short walk from the Drummond Hill entrance. You can also catch buses to Faskally and Queen’s View from Pitlochry.
