- 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.
Open from 07/04/2020 to 11/01/2020
