- Family-friendly off-grid site under 15 minutes' drive from Forfar
- A 15-minute drive from the Angus coast and 25 minutes from Dundee
- Indoor kitchen, plus wildlife pond, nature trails and kids' art shack
Beaches, mountains, ancient buildings and cool urban wanderings… all are within easy reach of Greenhillock Glamping, a spacious glampsite in the Angus countryside just under 15 minutes’ drive from Forfar town centre.
Getting around from this handy location is pretty straightforward, as it’s just a few minutes’ drive from both the A90 and the A92. And yet the vibe on site is very much one of rural peace: this is an off-grid place that’s been set up to make the most of its natural surroundings, with eco-friendly additions like eco toilets and solar or gas-powered showers to help preserve the environment.
There are plenty of ways to explore the site’s natural attributes too: for starters, you’ll have five acres of wildflower meadow at your disposal, along with nature trails mown into the long grass and stretching off into the surrounding copse like something of a natural maze (a very handy way to amuse the kids for a while…)
This is, in fact, something of a haven for free-range families: there’s plenty of den-building material around for kids’ constructions, and a wildlife pond has lots of wooden platforms for dipping in the water (plus some basic science equipment to help you identify what you’ve found).
Panic not if the weather takes a turn: creative kids should find plenty to play with in the art shack, and there’s a field kitchen with cooking facilities, eating space and a woodburning stove to ensure meals can be had in the dry. Other facilities include a covered washing-up area and three communal barbecues.
Open from 30/04/2021 to 26/09/2021

Which way first – coast or mountains? If you select the former it’s a drive of about 15 minutes to the famed seafront golf course at Carnoustie, 20 minutes to feast on seafood in Arbroath or half an hour to the spectacular sands of Lunan Bay (which the owners say is among their favourite places on earth…)
Heading inland instead, mountain climbers can get to the Cairngorms National Park with a drive of 40 minutes or so. For less challenging activities, try walks in the forests, hills and streams of the Angus Glens (20 minutes’ drive) or watersports and bike trails in the nearby country parks.
Make time too for a trip to Dundee (25 minutes), a city that’s got UNESCO City of Design status and attractions like the RRS Discovery, the ship that made the first successful journey to the Antarctic. On top of that, get to grips with Scottish history at Glamis Castle (20 minutes), said to be one of the finest in the land, and meet some of the more sizeable native beasts at Camperdown Wildlife Centre (25 minutes).
