Arran has a fantastic sustainability drive, this is being spearheaded by a local organisation Arran Eco Savvy. We have participated in Carbon Literacy Training to ensure our carbon footprint is as low as it can be. That is why at Balmichael Glamping:
We are very keen to raise awareness of environmental impact and you'll find some notices and information on site asking you to assist us on our GREEN MISSION:
One of our tents (Sannox) and one of our pods (the Bodega), are our designated dog friendly accommodation and we are delighted to welcome dogs to our site at Balmichael Glamping. There is an additional charge of £5 per dog per night and we would allow a maximum of two dogs within the Sannox tent, but the Bodega pod is really only suitable for one dog. Please contact us if you would like to discuss your dogs prior to booking.
We do ask that all dogs are kept on a lead within the site, due to the other animals that share the site as well as the surrounding livestock and ask that you bear this in mind when walking near the site. We have stakes and long ropes for your dog to borrow when you are relaxing outside. Dogs are required to have bedding provided and are not allowed on sofas or beds for hygienic purposes.
The play-park is there for your kids’ enjoyment. It is ideal for children under the age of 12 (although older kids are welcome to use it responsibly). We do ask that all children are supervised whilst using these facilities.
Whilst staying in our safari lodges or barrel pods you will have access to your own private shower suite just a short walk from your accommodation. These will be cleaned prior to your stay. We ask that you leave this in the same condition that you found it.
We have a lovely duck pond to the north of our site. This is home to our resident ducks, Morecambe and Wise. The duck pond is fenced off for your safety, please do not venture over the fence. If you would like to feed the ducks there will be bags of food available each day to purchase for 50p. We kindly ask that you do not give them any extra feed as we don’t want them getting too fat.
We ask that you respect the animals and wildlife that also share the Balmichael Glamping site, but ensuring that you clean up after yourselves and keep the noise levels to a respectful level.
We kindly ask that you do not feed them any extra food during your stay. If you would like to help feed any of our animals, please let us know and we will happily arrange for you to help out.
