Can you imagine a more beautiful place to go Glamping than on an organic farm situated on the shores of Loch Lomond?
Set in 230 acres of private farmland in the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park our glamping tent is the perfect place to relax and unwind while enjoying panoramic views over Loch Lomond, its islands and the mountains beyond.
The tent is a 5 meter diameter canvas bell tent suitable for up to 4 people and sits on a grassy plateau next to the Old Byre (where the cows used to be milked). Inside the tent you will find a double bed and 2 single futon beds which will be made up ready for your arrival. Although there is no electricity to the tent there is a wood burning stove to provide heat and 2 candle lanterns which provide a cosy glow. Towels are also provided so no need to bring your own.
Just next to the tent is a picnic bench, fire pit and BBQ for cooking on. In The Old Byre you will find a toilet, shower and kitchen/wash up area complete with induction hob, fridge, microwave, kettle, cutlery, crockery and complimentary tea and coffee. Car parking for 1 car is provided just next to the tent so you wont have to carry your bags too far.
The farm is ideally located for those who want to get out and enjoy the great outdoors with boat trips, kayak & stand-up paddleboard hire, wild swimming, fishing and farm tours all available on Portnellan. There are a number of walks both from the farm and just a short drive away ranging from flat, low level paths to Munros for the more adventurous. For those looking to visit a distillery (and possibly enjoy a wee dram!) both Glengoyne and Auchentoshan are less than a 30 minute drive. If you want to head into town we recommend leaving the car in Balloch and catching the regular train service into Glasgow which is only 40 minutes away and boasts a wealth of museums, restaurants and theatres.
Please be aware we are a working farm. This means that there may be tractors moving around, cows in nearby sheds or fields and if it rains it can get muddy so remember to bring your boots! If you’d like to look around the farm and meet the cows please just let us know, we’re always happy to show our visitors around!
Please note we ask guests not to smoke on the farm. We hope you understand – people enjoy the fresh air!
If you would like to buy any of our organic beef for your BBQ let us know prior to your arrival and we can leave it in the fridge ready for you.
Our glamping tent is Dog Friendly – There is space for up to 2 well behaved dogs and with plenty of walks and the loch to entertain them we’re sure they will enjoy their stay as much as you will! We just ask that they are kept under close control whilst on the farm. There is an additional charge of £20 per dog.
