Howe of Torbeg offers unique Glamping (glamorous camping!) accommodation in an excellent location in the heart of Royal Deeside & the Cairngorms National Park. Come and stay in one of our 4 wooden Glamping Pods or our off-grid Shepherd's Hut, surrounded by open farmland and gorgeous birch woodland. Guests can enjoy the tranquility of the Glen and access great walks and beautiful Scottish countryside straight from our site, whilst being only 5 miles from the picturesque village of Ballater with its shops, cafes & restaurants.
Beautiful inside and out, our Standard Pods sleep 2 and have comfy futon beds, which can be configured as Twin or Double. Our Luxe Pod is slightly bigger than our Standard pods, and has a super snuggly built in double bed. Perfect for a romantic getaway - or for a family as this pod can accommodate 2 adults + 1 younger child. All Pods are fully insulated & on-grid, with a heater should you need it for colder nights. Our Shepherd's Hut is a unique off-grid option, with solar lighting and a cosy log burning stove. With a super comfy built in double bed the Hut is perfect for couples. It also has two fold away camp beds stowed away under the double bed, which can sleep 2 children up to age 13.
Outside each accommodation you'll find a Kadai fire bowl for BBQs & nights under the stars, camping chairs, and a small deck area and picnic bench. The Wash House is our fully heated shower block, with lots of lovely free hot water on demand. Two covered outside sinks are available for washing up, also with free hot water. The Snug is our communal log cabin where you'll find books, games, a small dining table for groups, comfy chairs and a wood burning stove & oven (complete with instructions!). Although a small site, we have a shared grassy area, perfect for games or blanket lounging on sunny days and enjoying the stunning river and Glen views.
