General

  • Cosy shepherd's hut on a quiet hill with spectacular views
  • A couple of minutes' drive from Doune, and 15 minutes from Stirling
  • Sleeps two adults and two kids; with kitchen, bathroom and firepit

The Bankhead Shepherd's Huts team describe this Scottish and Stirlingshire site as ‘luxury meets the great outdoors’ – and how right they are: this is upscale glamping accommodation in a secluded and scenic location with lots to do close by.

The central Scotland setting is pretty special here, as Bankhead Shepherd's Huts is right beside Blair Drummond Safari Park, 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, Bankhead is a short journey from Stirling, Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park.

If you don’t want to stir even that far, that’s also sorted: a footpath 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.

The hut sleeps two adults and two children, in comfy beds (a kingsize double and a bunk above it), and comes with a comfortable living space, well-equipped kitchen and a bathroom with a WC and shower. There’s also a woodburning stove and outdoor table.

The nearest town is Doune, a mile and a half or a couple of minutes’ drive away. A farm shop is within walking distance and the large town of Stirling's supermarkets, petrol stations and cinema is 15 minutes' drive.

    The hut was of high standard and everything was spotlessly clean.
    Beds where extremely comfortable.
    Shower was roomy and powerful.
    Kitchen had everything you need and more.
    The views where stunning and we sat out in the seating area with the fire pit in the evenings which was lovely.
    We enjoyed our few days away and will most certainly be back in the near future.

    Fantastic stay at the Shepherd's hut, thank you. The hut is beautifully furnished and immaculately clean and, for such a wee building, it is both well equipped and feels remarkably spacious. Fantastic quiet, safe spot for the kids to play and they did love the tv, wifi, log burner and dishwasher (!) on an evening. Excellent communications with the owners and lovely little info pack was very helpful. Highly recommend and look forward to staying again.

    We had a lovely stay in the shepherds hut. The hut was a short walk from a local farm shop "The Smiddy" that did a great breakfast and cup of coffee. We also enjoyed some of the great walks around the estate and visited the safari park.

    The hut was well situated with fantastic views out over the hills. The bed was extremely comfortable and the bathroom clean and well equipped. We hardly used the kitchen but did light the wood burning stove.

    All in all a 5* stay and we will hope to return.
