General

  • Eco glamping site on an organic farm and 13th-century estate
  • Home of the first beaver reintroduction project in the UK
  • Woodburning stoves, beaver ponds and nearby woodland skills centre

Beavers and Banff... just brilliant. Bag a break at Bamff Eco Tourism for a wildlife-laden stay on a Perthshire farm, among planted and regenerated woodland home to many species of birds and small mammals.

This splendid spot is also the site of the first beaver ecological project in the UK, where beavers were reintroduced to the country in 2002 after being hunted to extinction centuries ago. Settle down by the two beaver ponds to see the industrious little critters working at their couple of dozen dams: the two beaver families on the estate are now quite the celebs and have been the subject of many boffin studies as well as several films.

The site is on the Bamff estate, owned and managed by generations of the Ramsay family since the 13th century. It's a short stroll (under a mile) from the Scottish Woodland Skills Centre, where all ages can take woodland crafts and skills courses including bushcraft, willow weaving and green woodworking – although it's fair to say you'll never be as skilful a woodworker as the Bamff beavers...

Bamff Eco Tourism is a mile from Alyth, about 25 minutes' drive north of Blairgowrie and 45 minutes from Dundee. All glamping units are off-grid and have their own woodburning stoves as well as access to logs and kindling. Showers and toilets are a short stroll away.

    Handmade accommodation is so inviting with a wood burning stove and big windows to look out of. The beaver log feature four poster bed is very cute too!

    We stayed in the "hideaway " Hut and loved it.

    Really close to nature but with a nod to glamping.
    The main Hut is a single skin wood structure. It is un-insulated, but still cosy. Wind and rain tight. It housed a fancy double bed complete with bedding, a two seat small round table, two funky retro old arm chairs, log fire, and camping cooker. There is also another fold out bed.

    No TV, no mains power. Light came from a solar panel/battery set up. Mobile phone/tablet charging is possible from a USB socket above the bed.

    The windows were massive and over look a beaver dam!

    5 meter walk along a tree root path you get to personal rain water fed shower. Beautiful and hot, but mind out, it has no in built lights! I just washed in the morning door open, ass out to hills!

    Next on the path was the huts private compost toilet.
    I personally love theses things and think they are very clean and healthy. If you're unsure about them, they smell Woody, are clean, and had zero flies when we were there. You can look at a mature pine wood from the toilet which has red squirrels in it!
    Also no lights in the toilet. A good tip is a torch. It's so nice but also so very dark at night away from everything!

From the manager...

Thank you for your great review. You were our first guest who booked through Pitchup so we are glad to have made such a good impression.
You will be pleased to learn that we are in the process of installing solar lighting in the shower and loo and recycled rainwater tap at the loo.
Hope you can visit again soon!

Local attractions

There's a stellar amount of stuff to see and do around Bamff once (if) you've torn your curious self away from the beaver ponds: take a long walk around the estate or borrow a bike from the team for serene sightseeing on a cycling trip. And if you really must hear mote about t he beavers (much recommended)? Guided tours are available to hear all about them and see them in action on the estate.

A short drive from Bamff will land you at other stellar sightseeing spots, such as Glamis Castle 25 minutes away, the 14th-century pile that was the inspiration for the Scottish play way back when and later the childhood home of one Queen Mum. Angus 40 minutes away is another top historical pick, with 12th-century Arbroath Abbey and the Pictavia Visitor Centre in the grounds of Brechin Castle.

Trot along to the Little Red Town’ of Kirriemuir (30 minutes' drive) for access to horse riding and the Angus Glens, and Peter Pan attractions aplenty; this was the birthplace of JM Barrie. From town, hike along the Angus Glens to the bottom of the Grampian Mountains for climbing and skiing adventures, and the hikes and waterfall of Kirriemuir Den.

Must see

  • Glamis Castle (10.3 miles)
  • Scone Palace (16.9 miles)
  • Caithness Glass Factory and Visitor Centre (17.2 miles)
