Luxury Glamping in Scotland

Craighead Howfs near Dunblane, Perthshire, Scotland offers seven unique and exceptional glamping accommodations, each one offering an individual experience in a quiet country setting.  Set in two acres of grounds you will be surrounded by natural gardens, a lochan and woodland areas, share wonderful views, sunsets and privacy. Yet thanks to our location you are ideally placed for easy access to some of Scotland’s finest countryside and tourist attractions.  Strike out from here to visit Stirling Castle, Wallace Monument, Edinburgh or Glasgow or head north for the Highlands, Scotland’s National Parks or the mountains and lochs of the Trossachs. We are only a mile and a half from Cromlix House, renovated by Wimdeldon champion Andy Murray. Why not treat yourself to lunch or dinner at this must visit venue being overseen by the Roux brothers.

For golfers it couldn’t be better with an array of golf courses available including the famous Gleneagles. Walkers and cyclists will find this an ideal base to return to in the evenings. Or simply relax surrounded by peace, tranquility and wildlife.  When the day is drawing to a close it will be time to sit under the stars, perhaps by a fire or BBQ and possibly enjoy a dram or two. Ian, Heather & family offer you a warm welcome.

Craighead Glamping is an adult only however, we welcome children during main holiday times to stay with us in the Muckle Howf.
