Charming glamping pods on a family farm in Loch Lomond with panoramic views, a hot tub and a fire pit.
Located near the end of the first leg of the West Highland Way, running from Milngavie to Fort William, The Heft & The Hirsel glamping pods are ideally suited for avid walkers looking for a base from which to explore the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. Sitting within the welcoming grounds of the Duncan Family Farm, they're equally perfect for small families, couples after a romantic break amidst stunning scenery or solo travellers looking for a break from daily life.
The Heft is a two person pod and boasts a luxurious hot tub for tired walkers, whilst The Hirsel can accommodate a couple and two children with the addition of a double sofa bed. The Hirsel is also dog friendly.
Both pods are snug and cosy, nestled into the pretty surroundings 20 metres apart, with serene views and large decks which almost double the living space in warmer months. The interiors have been cleverly designed to make the most of the available space with compact kitchenettes housing a Belfast sink, hob and microwave where you can rustle up a warm meal and a cup of tea. There's a comfy sofa and a small fold out table where you can enjoy your dinner on chillier nights and play a game of cards. Or snuggle up in bed and have a movie night!
Both pods have comfy double beds with The Hirsel offering a sofa bed for children, and there's an ensuite shower room where you can freshen up before the next leg of your adventure.
After a restorative night's sleep you can take your breakfast out on to the deck, eat at the picnic table and admire the view. And if you're staying in The Heft you might like to sink into the hot tub and take the scenery in that way. Both pods can be reserved together for larger parties, and that way everyone can take advantage of the hot tub, and you'll have this peaceful haven all to yourselves. There's also an additional area with outdoor seating and a fire pit with a grill where you can spend the evening cooking sausages, drinking fine wines and admiring the stars.
If you're looking for somewhere to eat, the hosts recommend The But & Ben which is in walking distance of the pods and offers a nice selection of brunch and lunch options. If you're in the market for some proper pub grub you have a few choices including The Oak Tree Inn, The Old Mill which is a gastro pub and for character you might like to try The Clachan Inn which claims to be the oldest pub in Scotland!
As well as plenty of wonderful walking routes the area has some lovely cycling opportunities, one of which will take you directly to the Glengoyne Distillery. This pretty distillery is renowned for having the most entertaining tour. It’s also unique in that it produces a Highland style malt in the Lowlands. You might want to take a bottle back to enjoy beneath the stars on your deck. If you'd like to enjoy some city fun, Glasgow is just down the road and Edinburgh is a not too taxing hour-and-a-half drive away.
Our pricing varies between our two glamping pods, as The Heft has a hot tub, The Hirsel does not.
Prices vary peak season and off peak season, as well as mid week and the weekends for each pod.
We offer one night stays mid week (Check in Monday to Thursday). One night stays do have a more expensive nightly price than longer stays.
We offer booking extras such as logs for the firepit, dog bookings, breakfast packs, early check in and late check out. These are not included in the accommodation price shown but can be added to your booking further on in the booking process, or they can be added to your booking later on by contacting us after your booking has been made.
