Firepit overlooking the River Garry

General

  • Peaceful setting with riverside pitches and views of the Cairngorms
  • A 15-min drive from Blair Atholl, 20 from Pitlochry and 60 from Perth
  • Semi-wild camping with hot shower plus free-range eggs for sale

Peace in Perthshire, with views of the Cairngorms? Come along to Dall Cottage Camping.

The sensible folk here have set up their small site to stay as close to nature as possible, keeping the vibe as semi-wild camping in a wildlife haven and rural setting. The site is next to the River Garry over a river ford crossing and is only accessible to walkers, cyclists and 4X4 vehicles, which means a definite remote feel as well as plenty of space…

And for your adventures off site? This is in stunning setting for outdoor days: on the southern edge of the Cairngorms National Park (Britain’s biggest, fact fans), a short drive from three lochs and just north of Tay Forest Park. There’s easy access to towns and cities too: Pitlochry is 20 minutes’ drive away, the Fair Trade shopping of Aberfeldy within 40, and Perth just over an hour. Blair Atholl, home to the Atholl Country Life Museum and Blair Castle, is 15 minutes from the site.

Wild camping of any flavour most certainly needs fire, and the Dall Cottage team turn up trumps here too, providing firepits for guests’ use so that eats, drinks and stargazing can be done alongside toasty flames. Amenities are well thought out too: there’s a hot shower, clean and well-equipped compost toilet, and car parking is allowed by your pitch.

Please note

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Facilities/activities including bottled water, eggs, logs and fire lighting kits are subject to extra charges payable on arrival.

Access to the site is through a river across a rough un-surfaced ford. Most of the time the river is low to allow for crossing. On occasion after heavy rain the river can rise quickly and be un-passable, please be aware of this and access to the site is at your own risk.

Recommended for 4×4 vehicles only with good ground clearance. Campers on foot or bike also welcome (you may get wet feet). Trail type motorbikes can cross with caution.

Local attractions

Local village Blair Atholl is a pretty place to start wanderings off at, for a stroll around the extensive gardens of 13th-century Blair Castle… then fish and chips at the town’s acclaimed takeaway. Scottish tweed, other clothing and gifts are all sourceable at the House of Bruar.

The Pitlochry fish ladder is a local destination to take your camera along too: this famed fishway has 34 pools in total, one with an underwater viewing area and CCTV for easy viewing. In town, the Pitlochry Festival Theatre has performances and festivals throughout the year, or if you’re feeling energetic you can strike out on the long-distance Rob Roy Way which runs for 79 miles from Pitlochy to Drymen in Stirling.

More walking paths, as well as mountain biking routes are close by, along with lochside walks along Loch Rammel, Loch Errochty and Loch Tummel all within 25 minutes’ drive. More placid options include the zoo and safari park of the Highland Wildlife Park (45 minutes’ drive), Aviemore (55 minutes), Cairngorm Reindeer Centre (also 55 minutes) and Scone Palace (an hour and five minutes).

Further afield, get along to Dundee or St Andrews an hour and 25 minutes and an hour and 45 minutes away respectively, for several castles and Firth of Tay views at the former and some of the most famed golf in the world at the latter.

Must see

  • Blair Castle (6.8 miles)
  • Braemar Highland Heritage Centre (27.9 miles)
  • Braemar Castle (28.5 miles)
