On Saturday the 18th of June we welcomed Bill Bruce back to the serenity and stunning surroundings of Cairngorms Glamping. Bill and his family were our first guests, staying in his motorhome. The spot that Bill picked, now has a glamping pod on it and he decided to come back and stay in one, enjoying his own hot tub. We welcome many more motorhomes, caravans and tents now in comparison to then…we just love sharing our campsite with you all. Bill set up this website for us and continues to give us dedicated online support, for this we thank him. He mentioned that he is very impressed by all our improvements, we aim to please. Guest satisfaction is what it’s all about for us.Read More

We are happy to report that our campsite was remarkably busy in the summer months last year. For 3 months we averaged at 70 guests on site per night at Cairngorms Glamping and Camping. We have enjoyed campsite guests non-stop since opening it in May 2021 (few weekends without any guests). We are developing the campsite all the time and now have toilets and showers (with more to be built). Coming soon is our food hut – Cairngorms Food2Go. We will be catering for our guests and will be open for breakfast and dinner.Read More
Well………where to start!? Things have been progressing at quite a speed here. We now have 3 glamping pods, 5 hardstanding EHU hook-up pitches and tent pitches. Not to mention the climbing frame which is almost completed. Our animals have also gained in number….our sheep Emma and Bella both had lambs which was exciting. Swift our pygmy goat had a kid 3 months ago, she’s now due to give birth to another. Freckles has also joined us, he’s a very friendly horse who would love to meet you. The icing on the cake is the business meetings we have had with a local company – we can’t wait to announce what they offer, hopefully very soon.Read More

It has been one very exciting day today, here at Cairngorms Glamping!!!! We are proud to announce the addition of new life to our fabulous venture! First to arrive, was our polytunnel which is now full of life which will hopefully grow into wonderful fruit and vegetables for you wonderful glampers.Secondly, we had more new life arrive on our doorstep today, our wonderful Golden Pheasant eggs – the eggs are resting for 24 hours and will then go into our incubator.

One of the most exciting events that happened recently in Strathdon, was the filming of “Mary Queen of Scots”!!!! It was a time of anticipation for us locals, not knowing what or who you may see when they were filming here. I have shared a few photos that we managed to capture, from “behind the scenes” of the battle on the bridge with the highland cow herd and shots of the stars on their stunning horses to the actual carriage that Mary travelled in, in the film. There are many stunning sights to see in Strathdon and the Cairngorms National Park, but we thought we would share these exciting shots with you. Our pod is available at a special rate (until the end of March) of £45 per night (sleeps 4). THE FIRST BOOKING RECEIVED THAT QUOTES “WEBSITE”, WILL RECEIVE TWO FREE BREAKFAST PACKS ON THE FIRST NIGHT OF THEIR STAY.Read More
