Blackberry Shepherds Hut

Blacklunans, By Blairgowrie, Perthshire and Kinross, Scotland

Simple shepherds hut offers tranquillity and romance near the Spittal of Glenshee. Book the hot tub for a treat!

The Quirky Tour

This has an agreeable hostel feel with large social kitchen / dining with fire and games, and shower rooms a stroll from the glamping.

The views, the farm animals, the option to add a hot tub, and the outdoor seating with washing machine drum fire pits all add to the experience.

Relax in tranquillity at this traditional shepherds hut with your loved one on a meadow site nestled near the stunning mountains of the Spittal of Glenshee and the Cairngorms National Park. Book a hot tub session for an extra treat! This can be added at time of booking at £95 for a day.

Inside Blackberry you can find a raised double bed with memory foam mattress for a great night's sleep plus a wood burning stove for extra cosiness on the chilly Scottish nights. A quirky wooden reel style table offers you somewhere to enjoy a simple meal or plan your day. 

Outside there is a picnic table for a spot of al fresco dining, the ideal place to sit with a cuppa in the morning and tipple of an evening. The hut is off grid so you can take the time to disconnect from technology and reconnect with your loved one. 

Near to Blackberry you will discover your individual private bathroom with shower, wc and sink, plus The Bothy - which is a communal kitchen area with hob, small oven, washing up facilities and extra dining tables.  

For extra relaxation why not book a session in the hot tub with its stunning views over the glen, covered seating area and changing room. You wiill be able to add this to your stay at the time of booking.

This family run site covers 10 acres and comes complete with llamas, donkeys, goats, ducks and chickens, all of which are very friendly. If you can drag yourself away from the beauty of the site then there is plenty to do including kayaking, archery, canoeing and guided cycling trips. If you prefer a quieter activity then book a course at the nearby Woodland Skills Centre where you can learn spoon carving, bushcraft, willow weaving and coppice crafts to name but a few. And of course during the winter, the site will be covered with beautiful snow and you can take to the slopes with skiing, toboganning and snowboarding at Glenshee. 

No children. A maximum of 2 dogs welcome at an extra cost of £5 each per night. 

There is a minimum 2 night stay.
