The 'Wee Howf' is a secluded romantic getaway that opened in 2014. It is quite simply unique, it is most definitely not one in a group! All our guests over the year have loved it.
Totally secluded with amazing views of the lochan and coutryside beyond, you are immersed in the environment but have a very special place to stay. This romantic cabin for two lets you experience camping with a difference. Fully insulated with a log burning stove and candle light - no there is no electricity, but you will be provided with everything you need to make this an amazing place to stay at any time of the year. The Wee Howf is built on stilts, amongst the trees with a burn running right underneath!!
In the evening sit outside by the open fire beside the lochan, barbecue or cook on the camping gas. Using the pulley pull a bottle of wine or beer up from the 'fridge in the burn' and enjoy views over the Ochils, or watch the fish jump. In the summer the swallows will dip in the water... You will be treated to lots of birds, wildlife, our two highland cows, soay sheep, ponies and much more.
At the end of the day settle down in the sumptuous double bed, star gaze through the star gazing window and listen to the burn bubbling under the 'Wee Howf'.
The facilities in the 'Wash Howf' which is a pleasant 200m walk along the lochan and up to the main buildings.
The Wash Howf also boasts a small shop for the things you may have forgotten or for the days you just don’t want to leave, in the shop you will also find additional wood and charcoal for the fire pit and BBQ. There is also a range of information of things to do in the local area and somewhere to hang wet coats/walking gear if the sun don’t shine!! It has been created in a charming country style offering you a shower, toilet, hair drying facility, fridge/freezer and washing up area.
There is plenty to do in the area in the day but if you don't feel like leaving the 'Wee Howf' you can just enjoy the two acres of grounds and gardens at Craighead.
