Stuc a'Chroin - Yurt in Stirling

Last cache: 19:33:27, Tuesday 24 May 2016

Trossachs Yurts

  • Yurt for 4 from £98 per night (read our low price promise)
    1 double bed, 1 double futon. A single Futon Company sleepover mat can be added.

Suitable for children of all ages

Not suitable for pets

Kids are welcome, but pets are not allowed in Stuc a-Chroin. However, pets are allowed at Ben Lomond.

One of the three Trossachs yurts. A cosy camp in a haven of arts and creativity...

The three Trossachs yurts are a fusion of Kyrgyk design and local materials which create a homely, earthy feel. Thick rugs, felt wall-hangings and wood-burning stoves add touches of comfort to the traditional Kyrgyzstani dwellings. Ben Ledi and Ben Lomond yurts share the woodland just a little way on from Stuc a’Chroin yurt and the two together make a great family camp. 

In each yurt there is a double bed and a double futon, plus a single sleepover mat which can be added for an extra child so they can sleep a family of five. From the boardwalk leading to the well equipped communal kitchen, there are impressive views across Flanders Moss National Nature Reserve, from which West Moss-Side Organic Farm, the home of Trossachs Yurts, takes its name.

There are arts and crafts courses aplenty at The West Moss-side Centre (a renovated 19th century steading and art gallery) including willow weaving, rushwork, felt crafting, and batik dye work. You can request a special treatment, a yoga course or even an accompanied wild swim! Beef from the cattle that graze on the moss, and both home-made bread and very local, seasonal produce from the organic kitchen garden are available for guests to buy. With all this plus the beauty of the lochs and the mountains of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park to explore, you won't be short of ways to make your stay memorable. Don’t forget that you are just one hour from Glasgow and Edinburgh and close to Stirling too. 

Our guests say...

It was a wonderful place to stay. Kate (the farm owner) was great and very helpful to make our stay as smooth as possible. The kids loved it to bits & also enjoyed the walk tour we had around the farm and having face to face experience with the cows & sheep. It was a nice experience and we would surely recommend it to our friends.

We had a wonderful relaxing holiday. Kate, the owner was very welcoming and helpful. All our needs were totally catered for. Will be back for sure and have recommended the yurts to friends and family and the canopy and stars website.

Our stay was very enjoyable and relaxing. We were welcomed by Kate and she made every effort to make us feel at home. She was always there to assist us and offer advice regarding our location.

Linda

"We LOVED our stay. Kate has an amazing place at West Mosside farm - it is impossible not to slow down and relax. Our yurt was so cosy in the evenings with candles lit, the log burner going and the rain hitting the ceiling. We've been telling everyone about it."

Allison

"Very much so. It was a very special occasion and we had to trust we were doing the right thing. Great communication with Kate beforehand and I felt reassured. She could not do enough for us while we were there, the result a magical celebration for my in-laws celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary and disabled brother in law."

"We had the most fabulous weekend at Trossachs Yurts.  It was totally different from anything we have done before.  It was so peaceful and well thought out.  I loved the fact there was no electricity in the Yurt, we relaxed, read books, talked, things that we rarely seem to get time to do at home.  I don't know if it was the pregnancy hormones, but I cried for an hour on my way home as I didn't want to leave!"

Amy

"We all had the most fantastic time! Kate was a wonderful host, with a warm welcome for us, time to stop and chat with our children, and recommendations for places for us to see/things to do. The yurt was warm and cosy, well furnished and provided with sufficient cooking pots, dishes and crockery for all of us. The woodburning stove was beautiful, and the supply of logs and kindling adequate for our stay - even when our son turned his hand to lighting the fire for us!! The location was fantastic, the peace and quiet superb, and the views breathtaking !And the best thing = the reevaluation of what is important - staying in the yurt has made us all, including the children, appreciate each other more, and aim to do more things together as a family, without the distractions of TV, computers etc. Now we just need to sort out a return trip...!"

"We cannot have imagined a more perfect place to spend our wedding night.  The yurt was the most enchanting of places to be on our first night of married life and thank you Kate for the finishing touches and keeping the fire going for when we got back here in the small hours of New Year’s Day."

Barbara & Joe

"My family thought I was mad to consider staying in a yurt in wintertime – but as we pack up now they agree it was the best idea I had in a long time. Kate is amazing, a really jolly character who met us when we arrived and gave us a full tour of the yurt and the facilities we could use. The yurt itself has everything you could want – a real home away from home. We ate at the Lion and Unicorn one night (highly recommended) but our second night we had Kate’s own beef sausages and burgers cooked in the yurt!! What a treat."

Vikki

"It was the best fun ever. We saw Highland cattle and also Loch Katrine was beautiful. The camp site was just amazing the yurt is so fun. We bought some marshmallows and popped them on the fire and they were really good fun."
