Loch Ness Glamping
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 6, 2013

The armadillas were excellent value for money, warm, spacious and very comfortable. Owners were very friendly and helpful and the summer house with indoor BBQ/fire pit was a really nice touch - BBQs and campfires whatever the weather. The site is very close to lots of designated walks which take in spectacular scenery and the nearby village of Drumnadrochit has a great pub/restaurant which stocks over 400 malt whiskys. Loch Ness is a very short drive from the site. Many of the tourist attractions are within reasonable walking distance and easy cycling distance but taking a car makes things a lot easier. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back.

Me and my wife just returned from a lovely 3 night break at Loch Ness staying in the armadillas... We have been glamping now for a few years and these are up there with the best we have visited.. They are perfect to unwind and relax and the BBQ hut is just a brilliant idea.. The staff here were first class even helping us with bags from our car.. And at £3 for a bag of charcoal which is cheaper than the local shop you cannot ask for more... All in all cannot recommend this place more it is lovely..

just spent two nights glamping in the excellent wooden pods x very cosy and well equipped - myself and my hubby were able to completely unwind and relax. The barbeque hut is a great idea - well thought out and lovely place to meet fellow glampers x I would urge everyone to visit here - just remember to bring matches to light your fire pit xx

We've camped for years and seen camping pods before but nothing like this. Everything you needed was provided. Underfloor heating, intimite lighting, Flat screen T.V with freeview, DVD player, ipod docking station, kettle, toaster, microwave indoor and outdoor BQ's with cooking utensils, sun loungers, wash up area, pans, cuttlery, crockery, tea coffee, sugar. All you need to take is food and beverages.
The armadillas are set on a small hilside with beatiful views accross the valley on the site of a small holding where you can see horses, cattle, sheep and baby lambs being born. One of my highlights was getting to hold a one day old lamb, it was so cute! I've already been recommending this to my friends and I recommend it to anyone who reads this comment. Give it a go, you'll love it!

These armadillos are amazing they have all of your home comforts and are so cozy and warm. if you love beautiful countryside, stunning views and wildlife this is the place for you. In our 3 nights stay me and my husband and friends saw a herd of deer, 2 little lambs being born, the owners even let us hold a baby lamb. We all absolutely loved everything about the experience spending all 3 nights in the beautiful fully equipped indoor bbq hut where you could play music while eating/drinking/chatting we simply didn't need to go anywhere else. Fantastic value for money we were provided with tea, sugar, coffee and toilet rolls, towels were changed and rooms cleaned during our stay + owners could not have been more friendly and helpful.

Went with my partner and we had a brilliant time!
The Armadillo's are great. They have everything in them you would need and are really cosy...don't think I could ever use a tent again! The farm is lovely and we had horses, highland cows, loads of land to roam and sheep giving birth just a short walk away. The owners are really hospitable too.
On top of that there is a fab BBQ area and if you bring along food and good drink...you can have a brilliant time!
The surrounding area is absolutely stunning and there are some beautiful spots to visit. You can climb mountains, visit castles, spot deer, see dramatic landscape and waterfalls, meet the locals...then cuddle up by a roaring fire and relax.
We highly recommend

Had read some negative reviews on here before we left for Drumnadrochit so were a little apprehensive.
We had absolutely NOTHING to worry about. There were 6 of us arriving taking 3 of the 4 armadillos. WE LOVED THEM.
I've been glamping before and they were nothing like these little beauties. Where do I start....Underfloor heating, wet room (hot shower, hand basin and toilet in one little room), very comfortable bed, toaster, kettle, fridge, plates, knives and forks, spot lights controlled by dimmer switch, extra mood lighting, little outside light too, your own fire pit and decking area, free Wi-Fi. Very clean. The shared indoor barbecue was excellent, really cosy.
The owners couldn't have been more helpful and recommended things to do, which we took them up on. We had a fab day at Glen Affric and walking to Plodda falls. Breathtaking scenery. I am totally going back here and will be highly recommending to all my friends.
The drive there through Glen Coe was out of this world and then the drive home through the Cairngorms was was equally as beautiful. Everyone we met was really friendly and helpful. Even when i reversed my car into a small ditch, the locals were there in no time helping me out.
Can't wait to get back.
