Camping

Wild camping, under the stars of a great big black unpolluted sky, is one of the greatest pleasures there is. Late-night songs and banter, huddling up, and then seeing the dawn rise silently over the hills, with only the sounds of wild animals and birds to keep you company, are moments everyone should experience. However, mindful that camping can represent a significant fire risk, the estate requires campers to abide by the Scottish Outdoor Access Code’s guidelines for camping out. These include:

 

- Use a cooking stove rather than light a fire
- Restrict your visit in any one place to no more than three nights
- Go in small parties of no more than two tents
- Remove litter and traces of your tent pitch

  • - Try to avoid camping in enclosed fields of crops or livestock – other than that, choose wherever you like. The Estate Office is happy to make recommendations if you want a good pitch near a car park and other amenities.
