Comrie Croft is an award-winning green destination including a farmstead hostel, group accommodation, camping, nordic kåtas, walking trails, wildlife viewing and some of the best compact mountain-biking in the country. It’s about an hour from both Edinburgh and Glasgow, and sits minutes from the town centre of Crieff.
We visited for a couple of days last week and stayed under canvas. The options are great if camping is not your thing as they have a hostel and can offer wooden kåtas which each have their own wood burning stove to keep you warm all year round.
The camping areas are fabulous, and the facilities even better. With lockers available to hire to charge your phone, modern showers, an onsite shop with everything that you would need, and there is even a Tea Room if you don’t fancy making your own food/coffee/tea. The Tea Room is also a great place to visit even if you are not staying at Comrie Croft. There are areas to charge your electric car, water bowls for dogs, fire pits so you can enjoy the heat of an open fire when the sun goes down (which also double up a great beastie repellent), and many more added extras which make this campsite great for seasoned and non-seasoned campers alike.
The meadow that we camped in had a few families, and all was quiet come bed time. We were there as a family of four (with our dog too), and it really was perfect. The only thing when camping in Scotland that you can’t control is the weather. We arrived and pitched our tent in the glorious sunshine, and took it down in the pouring rain. It didn’t dampen our spirits though, as we all said that we would definitely return and can recommend it as a destination to others.
Comrie Croft gets 5 stars from us!
