Duncan Family Farms - The Hirsel
Our glamping pods resemble shepherds huts externally with a homely spacious interior. The pods are designed principally for two but can accommodate four and have an en-suite shower, toilet and a fully equipped, bespoke country kitchen.
We’re well placed for cyclists as well with both the National Cycle Route 7 and the John Muir Way Cycle Route on our doorstep. When it comes to hills (or munros) you’ll be spoilt for choice. A world-class view at the top of Conic Hill (361 metres) is reached after a short steep climb. Iconic Ben Lomond (974 m), Scotland’s most southerly munro, is a short drive away. Dumgoyne (427 m) is a prominent, rounded volcanic plug on the edge of the Campsie Fells offering panoramic views. The hill is also the source of the water that goes into the making of whisky at nearby Glengoyne Distillery. This picture-card distillery is renowned for having the most informative and entertaining tour in the industry. It’s also unique in that it produces a Highland style malt in the Lowlands. You might want to take a bottle back to sample on your deck as you watch the sun set.
As well as the above the area affords many golfing and fishing opportunities. An architectural gem on our doorstep is Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s Hill House at Helensburgh, a half hour drive away. And historic Stirling Castle is a half hour’s drive in the opposite direction. Glasgow is just down the road and for those staying a bit longer a day out to Edinburgh is very doable at an hour and a half away. Nearer to base are the local attractions of the Salmon Leap, at the Pots of Gartness and the Devil’s Pulpit. You’ll find further information in your pod!
