What a location – alongside a stream and surrounded by mountains! There’s plenty of space to pick a spot – alongside the stream, amidst tree cover and there are plentiful prepared fire-circles, with wood available for a campfire. The facilities are simple – loos, hot showers, washing up station, visitor info – but plenty for a good camp. The manager of the red squirrel is friendly and helpful. Good pub food about a mile down the road at the Clacaigh Inn.
Martin and Abigail – Tripadvisor Review
We stayed at the red squirrel for one night during our trip to the Highlands and was very impressed. The pitches all have amazing views over the river or the mountains, the facilities were clean and comfortable with lovely hot running showers and it is only a 1 mile (very picturesque) walk from a cosy warm pub that serves lovely food and selection of great ales. This campsite was definitely one of our favourites during our trip.
Polkadot Rain – Tripadvisor Review
Steeped in history and shaped by fire and ice Glen Coe boasts some of the world’s most spectacular scenery. These rugged and remote environments of volcanic origins are famous hunting grounds for the aspiring landscape photographer and perfect for a romantic getaway.
Recently voted as Scotland’s most romantic glen, it is the ideal location to explore the Scottish Highlands.
With its scenic views, it’s really no surprise that many movies from Harry Potter, to James Bond use the landscape for it’s dramatic backdrop. With each season, new waves of colour wash across the steep foothills up to the angular mountain peeks. Summer through to winter, the glen always has something beautiful to offer.
