- Riverbank glamping with mountain views
- Fish for salmon and trout on private stretch of the river
- Heated amenities block with free hot showers
Might you want some luxury glamping on a riverbank location in pretty Perthshire, with striking mountain views and a scenic section of bank from which to cast off for salmon and trout? Go on, you’ve Earned it.
Find this – and a fair bit more – at on the banks of the River Earn, ten minutes’ walk from Perthshire’s market town of Crieff and listed as a spectacular scenery site for its mountain and river views. You can pick up a permit at reception to fish on Braidhaugh’s own part of the Earn, or use the park as a base for touring Perthshire and other top Scottish sites. Gentle canters on horseback or foot are nearby too: walks of all levels are all around the Crieff area and horse riding is available at Braidhaugh’s sister site in the area, Loch Tay Highland Lodges.
Facilities on site include a heated and clean amenities block with free power showers, toilets, a wash area, shaver points and hand and hair dryers. Facilities for disabled guests are in the main shower block.
Clothes can be washed, dried and pristinely pressed in the launderette (get the other half to do it, you’re on holiday), and the games room with table football, dartboard, air hockey and TV should keep the kids occupied on rainy days.
Top up essentials and toiletries at the onsite shop, or head into Crieff for more substantial supplies, restaurants, pubs and hotels.

(listing defines adults as age 17+)
Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

Ah, Perthshire…you could spend weeks here and still have to go back for more. More fishing, great golfing, red squirrels, country parks and historical highlights including Scotland’s oldest library and Iron Age hill forts – all here in a heady mixture along with the essentials of whisky trailing and big city shopping.
Nearby Crieff was a wild west style cattle rustling town in times of yore; it’s tamer these days but thrillseekers can check out the Crieff Hydro Outdoor Activity Centre to whirl around an aerial adventure course on tightropes, ziplines and cargo nets, or get sporty at some of the dozens of indoor and outdoor pursuits here including golf, riding, swimming and football. The centre has a reputation for being particularly sprog-friendly, as does the popular MacRosty Park on the west side of Crieff at the bottom of Minlab Street: there’s a good-sized children’s playground here for all ages, beside a café for tired parents.
From MacRosty, set off along the River Earn to see the oak, beech and sweet chestnut trees on Lady Mary’s Walk, one of Perthshire’s most popular strolls for its wealth of wildlife and autumnal blaze. Another top tree-based walk – Perthshire is known as Big Tree Country, after all – is around the oldest managed forest in Scotland, Craigvinean, or the Atholl Estate and its wild tree garden with possibly the biggest Douglas fir you’ll ever see.
Perthshire also has plentiful options for day trips: tracking down the real Macbeth to Dunsinane Hill, Bonnie Prince Charlie to Castle Menzies and graffiti artist Rabbie Burns to the Scotland’s oldest inn at Kenmore; skiing and snowsporting at Glenshee, and indoor karting and soft play at Noahs Ark in Perth.
For rainy days, the sports centre local to Braidhaugh has an indoor pool, and nearby Auchingarrich Wildlife Park is good in wet weather because of its covered walkways and indoor activities. Or drive to Perth and Dunfermline for that shopping recommended above: till-ringing always seems more fun when it’s tipping it down.
