Comrie Croft Eco Camping

Camping Park

Comrie Croft, Braincroft, Crieff, Perthshire, PH7 4JZ

    A bit like wild camping, but with easy car access and lovely facilities. Campfires encouraged! bring your own tent or upgrade to a Nordic Kata with wood-burning stove and sheepskin rugs, built on a wooden platform in the birchwoods.

    For camping in a beautiful natural environment, with campfires and great facilities, welcome to Comrie Croft Eco Camping.

    Make life easy with one of the Nordic Katas - large tipi style tents with an alpine style bed, sheepskins, and a wood-burning stove to keep you cosy (1 tub of firewood included). The katas are mostly set in their own glades in the birch woodland glades, together with a hammock and outside firepit. One is located on the Low Meadow for ultimate convenience. They come equipped with all the camping essentials for cooking and eating for 4 people. They can easily accommodate a family of 6 - you just bring the extra place-settings. Apart from that all you really need to bring are sleeping bags/bedding and a towel for the piping hot showers!

    If you are bringing your own tent you have a choice of 3 scenic areas to pitch - and not a caravan in sight! The High Meadow and Low Meadow both take any size of tent, though you just pay per person. There are individual firepits for your use. Firewood can be collected for free in certain areas (please ask), you can bring your own or you can buy sacks of logs for £6. Woodland pitches are restricted in size to a standard 4-person tent or smaller. The woodland pitches are set in their own little clearings.

    Whatever option you choose you'll have access to 230 acres of land that is gradually being rewilded. There are lots of opportunities to spot wildlife including Red Kites, Deer and Squirrels, with 4 way-marked paths and some waterfalls. There are also purpose built bike trails, bike hire and when you've had your fill of all the healthy exercise to be had why not flop in the Tea Garden Cafe which is full of tempting home-baking,  amazing coffee, breakfasts and lunches.

    We look forward to meeting you soon!

    Public Transport Directions

    Public transport connections are good and everyone who arrives without a car (bike, foot, bus) gets a 10% discount...

    Our nearest transport hub is Perth. Get a train, sleeper train or coach to there from many parts of the UK, change once for the number 15 bus (for Comrie) and ask for our own 'Comrie Croft' bus stop. The journey from Perth takes about 45 minutes and runs regularly throughout the day, evening and on Sundays.

    In the summer additional services are offered by Citylink Coaches to/from Dundee/Perth and the west (Oban, Fort William, etc.), stopping at Comrie Croft. 

    Finally (leaving the best till last!) the Ring of Breadalbane Explorer bus is a hop-on hop-off bus that also carries bikes (free) from Comrie Croft around the spectacular Ring of Breadalbane six times a day. At the time of writing it operates 4 days a week on Tue, Thu, Sat and Sun. The route takes in some lovely towns and villages including Aberfeldy, Kenmore and Killin, opportunities for mountain climbing and all the major visitor attractions enroute - with special deals available at them all for bus ticket holders. This local initiative comes highly recommended.
