Our glamorous safari tents are named after two of Arran's glens. These large canvas constructions are supported by wooden frames, fitting into the landscape. They do billow on a breezy day like any tent.

Enjoy panoramic views from the indoor-outdoor living spaces with alpacas as your closest neighbours. Each tent is equipped with a private wood-fired tub.

Guests are welcome to meet & feed the animals (days and times available on arrival). 

Quiet time is 11pm in respect of our other guests and neighbours in our peaceful, rural location. Like all tents, noise travels through the canvas.

The safari tents have different layouts so choose which will suit your group.

Hire the wood-fired pizza oven: we provide 4 doughballs & pizzaq sauce - you provide the toppings. Choose which night you'd like the pizza oven when booking. The cost of this is £25 and additional dough balls can be ordered in advance for £2.50.

Doggy Guests!! Both safari tents are dog friendly. Two dogs may stay at an additional cost of £5 per dog per night. Please see our FAQ page for further information about our site and doggy rules.

Dogs must be kept on leads at all times and able to cope around livestock (barking dogs cause distress to the animals).






Cancellation 6 weeks before stay: refund of deposit less £30 administration charge OR change of date (no charge).
