    Ruberslaw Wild Woods Camping - Breathe in the Borders - Tented camping only - in exclusive & remote Safari Tents; AND for pitch-your-own campers in the Walled Garden, woodland pitches for groups, & remote hill pitches for solitude-seekers.

    Ruberslaw Wild Woods Camping is dedicated to people who love camping in tents. The Scottish Borders has no other camp site like Ruberslaw Wild Woods Camping. Our 500 acres of unspoilt upland is set in the heart of the unspoilt landscapes of  the Teviot Valleys Special Landscape Area. The views from the top of Ruberslaw are well worth the climb

    Wild-camp on the slopes of Ruberslaw, Hide away in our woodland clearings, or Enjoy the seclusion and comforts of our walled garden, close to the hub around which it all revolves.  For pitch-your-own campers we offer:

    • prepared pitches of various sizes in our Edwardian Walled Garden
    • exclusive individual pitches in remote and wild woodland locations, with their own eco-facilities
    • two woodland sites where you can camp as a group, or  on your own, sharing eco-facilities

    We also have Safari Tents (fully equipped and furnished) in exclusive and remote wild woodland locations, with their own eco-facilities, allowing you to "Glamp"  far way from it all, and extremely close to nature.

    Trolleys make taking your kit to the Walled Garden pitches easy, and if hill campers have more than will fit into a back-pack we can help out with our All Terrain Vehicle.

    The Hub in the Walled Garden (where all cars are parked) has top quality facilites for everyone, underfloor heating, a well equipped kitchen, and a large under-cover gathering area centred on the huge fireplace.
