Family Glamping Pod

Blacklunans, By Blairgowrie, Perthshire and Kinross, Scotland

Family sized pod with the option to book a hot tub! Enjoy meeting all the animals on the farm - donkeys, llamas and goats, near Glenshee.

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 and have fun at this family sized wooden pod, that sleeps up to 4 guests, on a rural site nestled amidst beautiful mountains near the Spittal of Glenshee and the Cairngorms National Park. Book a hot tub session for an extra treat for from £85.

Inside the Family Pod you can find a cosy double bed with memory foam mattress and 2 single futons that offer a sofa space by day and sleeping space by night. There is electric heating for extra cosiness on the chilly Scottish nights and extra fleecy blankets for those chilly mornings. The pod has electric lighting and sockets for that added touch of luxury, so you can charge your electronics and take lots of family photos during your stay. When it comes to eating, you can choose to dine outside on the picnic table taking in the views of the surrounding mountains. A firepit is supplied for those evenings when you wish to stargaze or have a singsong or story time.

Near to the Family Pod you will discover a shower block. Plus The Bothy - which is a shared kitchen area with hob, small oven, fridge-freezer, washing up facilities and extra dining tables.  

For extra relaxation why not book a session in the wood burning hot tub! This can be brought direct to you and placed outside your pod - what a great service, and fun for all the family. 

This family friendly site covers 10 acres and comes complete with donkeys, goats, ducks, chickens and llamas plus a gorgeous natural play area with grass mounds to roll down, tunnels to climb through, tractor tyres to play with and lots of den building equipment. There are even plans for a new wildlife pond, so children can learn all about bugs and insects.

If you can drag yourself away from the tranquillity of the site then there is plenty to do nearby including kayaking, archery, canoeing and guided cycling trips. If you prefer a quieter activity then book onto a course at the nearby Woodland Skills Centre where you can learn bushcraft, willow weaving, spoon carving and coppice crafts to name but a few. And of course during the winter, the site will be covered with snow and you can take to the slopes with skiing, toboganning and snowboarding at Glenshee. 

Children welcome. A maximum of 2 dogs welcome at an extra cost of £5 each per night. 

There is a minimum 2 night stay.
