- Nearly-wild camping field in a rural Lanarkshire location
- A 40-minute drive from Irvine and Glasgow city centre
- Part of a working smallholding; a short walk from a fishery
Looking for almost-wild camping in Lanarkshire? This rural site is part of a working smallholding on the edge of the small village of Drumclog, a convenient location close to the A71. There's plenty of grass and open skies at West Tor, and lots of room for guests to pick their own plot, while a band of woodland provides shelter from the wind and privacy for overnight guests.
This site is an easy 40-minute drive from central Glasgow, making a great base for quick escapes to the country or longer stints in the rural Scottish Lowlands. Some of the site owners' organic dairy calves can often be seen grazing in a neighbouring field, while at other times of year there's plenty of nature about to keep you entertained.
West Tor has simple facilities like a composting toilet and tap stand on site, meaning that this is a place best suited to self-sustaining travellers who enjoy the chance to build a campfire or cook their own dinner over a barbecue.
Away from base, anglers will find entertainment at the local fishery (a short walk from site), while other outdoor activities like Drumclog Offroad Centre (five minutes' drive) and hiking trails are also within easy reach.
