Shepherd's Loch

Toggle location map

Shepherd’s Loch is an off-grid glamping site located on a working farm in the beautiful Aberdeenshire countryside. You can enjoy staying in one of our unique, rustic huts which are set around six small lochs. Crannoch, a yurt, is right at the water’s edge and has a hot tub for guests to enjoy; Otter is built into a small hillside and it’s large round window overlooks the main loch; Dragonfly is a wooden wigwam with its own private yard; Graham’s Bothy is a mini house with a hot tub and front veranda overlooking a loch; Beehive, is a yurt and hexagonal, wooden hut with windows on all sides; and The Wheel House, a converted ship’s wheelhouse with the original ship’s wheel still in place.  Children are welcome to stay in all the accommodation and families can rent the site for special occasions. Dogs are permitted in all out huts except for the yurts. 

Guests can fish on the lochs which are fully stocked with trout. There are also kayaks, a children’s play area and zipline. We have a small on-site shop with a supply of snacks and souvenirs. Our Fishing Hut offers a communal meeting place and table games for the children. Visits to the farm can be arranged on request.

All huts have their own private kitchenette, toilet and shower as well as a wood burner, camping stove, barbecue and cool box or fridge. We provide all bedding, towels, cooking pots and crockery. 

Much of our accommodation is made from recycled materials. We have our own waterwheel which, along with solar panels, generates our 12V electricity supply.
