“Great weekend at Loch Ness glamping.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014 via mobile

After just returning from my weekend trip to Loch Ness glamping, I am already looking to book again!

This place is fantastic. The photos don't do it justice. At first I thought the armadillos would be cramped, however they are actually very spacious inside! The wet room looks small until you are inside with the door closed, there's a lot more space than you think! The armadillos are also equipped with a kettle, toaster, cutlery, sugar and tea bags which is great! Breakfast is available for £7.50 which consists of the usual sausage, bacon, scrambled egg etc, however the breakfast is lovely and it's great you are able to take it back to your armadillo to eat indoors or out.

The owners were not there the first night we arrived, but another lady showed us around when we arrived. We arrived pretty late, around 9.30pm, and she had no problems at all to show us around and tell us about Drumnadrochit. Very friendly and pleasant lady! I finally got to meet the owners briefly on my second night and they both seem so friendly too.

I will most definitely be recommending Loch Ness glamping and I will be returning.

Thanks again for a brilliant stay.

Thanks for the most perfect three days - the pod was clean and cosy with everything thought of.
The site was wonderful - relaxing beautiful and with little surprises like hammocks and swings and a wonderful gazebo hiding by the river - many thanks to Alison for looking after us and being attentive without being intrusive .
We will definatly be back :)

Armadillo was lovely, bed comfortable and had everything we needed. We stayed in 4 so as per other reviews no wifi, however owner pointed this out when we arrived and we were able to access elsewhere in the site. Owners were friendly but left us to our own devices once we were settled in, ideal. Fire pit was great, managed to cook on it, then kept going for a lovely evening. Site location is also good, with Glen Affric nearby, as well as Loch Ness. We went to Skye for a day trip as well, lovely journey and not too far. Great spot for a couple and their dog, would go back.

Myself and my husband are just back from spending a weekend here. We are both in agreement that it was an absolutely amazing little place. The pod in itself was both clean and spacious with all the mod cons that you may find yourself needing for your stay. The bbq at the side of the pod was a good size and cleaned out daily. There was a lot of lovely wildlife on your doorstep, the lambs and highland cows were especially adorable. The owners were as helpful as they could have been with supplying us with coals and wood for our fire, and always had a smile when we seen them around the complex. The one drawback I would say was the bed. For it being basically two couches with a supporting cushion it is hard, and if you, like us, prefer a harder pillow then take your own. Other than this minor detail our weekend couldn't have been better. This experience has most certainly made us want to continue glamping. Thank you for having us!!

Thank you for your comments we are pleased you enjoyed your stay.
The bed problem has had us thinking for a while. The beds have the option to be twins or be made back into seating during the day. Foam toppers would be good but there is nowhere to store them when not in use. Any suggestions would be most welcome.

We stayed at Loch Ness Glamping last week in a lovely Armadilla which had everything we needed. However, we found the hosts to be a little condescending. First of all, on ringing the owners mobile phone to say we had arrived (as instructed to do so) the response was less than welcoming and we were immediately made to feel like we had done something wrong. The following morning we were made to feel quite embarrassed for a misunderstanding regarding the breakfast arrangements. As glampers, it was not made clear that we were not meant to sit at the breakfast table with other guests as no one greeted us for at least 5 minutes but rather we were to take a tray back to our Armadilla which was overpriced for what it included. We had no issue with having a takeaway breakfast but the way we were spoken to in front of guests and then spoken about very noisily in the kitchen did not make us feel comfortable. In the end we washed our plates for fear of doing more wrong, left the key and went (we paid when we arrived). The stay in the armadilla itself was great and there was a good service that picked and dropped us off to the local restaurant from the site which was recommended to us by the owners. It was just a shame that we felt a little uneasy overall.

We are sorry for the misunderstanding at breakfast and we hope it didn't spoil your one night stay in the Armadillas. We try to make it clear on ordering breakfast that it is a takeaway breakfast but if you have any suggestions as to how to avoid this situation for future guests we would be happy to receive them by email.
