Ecocamp Glenshee is located within the small settlement of Blacklunans at the Southern foot of Mount Blair on the Blackwater. Glenshee Ski Centre, the largest ski resort in Scotland, is 14 miles away and Perth lies 30 miles to the south of the site. This area of Perthshire is perfect for lovers of the great outdoors with mountain biking, stalking, hill walking, fishing and shooting all available locally. It is an ideal base from where to tour Scotland with Glamis Castle, Scone Palace, Pitlochry & all the major cities within 2 hour’s drive.
The site is set on a sloping site surrounded by stunning views and prides itself on its unique tranquil surroundings. The owners operate the business in an eco-friendly manner and they have been rewarded with a silver glamping award for green tourism. Upon entering the site, there is a lower car park for holidaymakers to park their vehicles during their stay. The glamping accommodation is laid out spaciously on higher ground and comprises 6 camping pods, 2 shepherd huts, a converted railway goods carriage and group accommodation referred to as “The Howff” which is rustic and charming accommodation that can sleep up to 10 guests. There are also two hardstanding decked areas for bell tents which are erected in the summer months.
Each glamping unit stands alone providing plenty of privacy which, in itself is quite unique, and provides holidaymakers with tranquil, stress-free holidays. The site is particularly popular with families, couples and skiers. The glamping accommodation is served by an amenity block heated by propane gas heaters and providing free hot water. The toilet block has 4 x WC, 4 x sinks and 1 shower. Additionally, there is a shower block consisting of 3 showers and 1 family room (basin/WC/shower) Additional amenities are provided within the “Bothy”; a communal kitchen/dining/lounging area for guests heated by a log burning stove. This facility provides a basic cooking area for guests and is a social hub for the site.
The Bothy is located adjacent to the main house on site and offers future residential conversion potential, subject to planning.
