The Hector's Huts team describe this Scottish and Stirlingshire site as ‘luxury meets the great outdoors’ – and how right they are: this is swish glamping accommodation in a secluded and scenic location with lots to do close by.
The central Scotland setting is pretty special here, as Hector's Huts is right beside Blair Drummond Safari Park, and with plenty of walks and bike rides nearby. Views are towards the Gargunnock hills and the hut is in a wildlife haven: look out for hares and red squirrels, or the deer grazing out the field in front. Taking to the car, Hector's is between Stirling to the south east and the Loch Lomonds and Trossachs National Park to the north west too; both are within 15 minutes’ drive.
If you don’t want to stir even that far, that’s also sorted: a dog walk immediately opposite the site leads to a swathe of 19th-century ornamental woodland; birdwatching at Quarry Loch is half a mile away, and more walks – and bike rides – are around the grounds or a short drive away. An information room with details of these and other local attractions and activities is on site for guests.
The hut sleeps two adults and two children, in comfy beds (a kingsize double and a twin bunk), and comes with a living space, well-equipped kitchen and a bathroom – all among spectacular Stirlingshire scenery. There’s also a woodburning stove, two tables (one indoors and one out) and a firepit for outdoor evenings under the stars.
The nearest town is Blair Drummond, a mile and a half or a couple of minutes’ drive away. A farm shop is within walking distance.

Animal fans will likely yearn to spend some time at the Blair Drummond Safari Park where Hector's Huts is set: this popular place is home to lions, monkeys, giraffes, zebras, rhinos, elephants and loads more across several zones. A petting farm, viewing platforms, birds of prey display and regular talks are also at the park, as are play areas with boat safari, pedalos, rollercoaster, dodgems and an undercover sandpit.
Scottish castles and Scottish whisky are also easy to explore from here, at Doune Castle and Stirling Castle 10 and 15 minutes’ drive away, and Deanston Distillery on the way to Doune, five minutes from the site.
The Wallace Monument is 15 minutes' drive away.
