Small family run campsite in rural Angus

Greenhillock Glamping is a boutique eco camping and glamping site set in five acres of wildflower meadow in Angus. We are a small family run site with 25 camping pitches and five bell tent glamping pods. We strive to balance the simplicity of camping in unspoilt countryside with just the right facilities close at hand. We also highlight the importance of biodiversity and sustaining habitat. We do this by allowing guests to get up close to nature, sleeping in the meadows and having time to appreciate the beauty of native species and wild places.

Our facilities include five composting loos, three solar powered showers, a communal field kitchen, BBQ area and Art Shack. We have a strong environmental ethos which has seen us grow a loyal eco friendly following since we began trading in 2016.
