Set in almost 60 acres of farm & woodland on the edge of the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park your Glamping Tent overlooks our very own Lochan Broarran (named after the boss’ boys Brodie & Arran). Your tent is Off Grid and includes a woodburner stove (firewood included), twin beds or double bed, kitchen equipment, a 24 litre cooler box, table & chairs, candlelit storm lanterns & LED lighting and we provide a complimentary self catering breakfast basket.
We are located right next to the Sustrans Cycle Route 7 with trails leading to Aberfoyle and the Queen Elizabeth Forest giving great cycling and walking routes. Gartmore village is a 2 mile walk for some pub grub from the community owned Black Bull Pub and Hub and there are a variety of eateries in Aberfoyle.
