Spent a night up here with a group of great friends,had to book all the wigwams. The main building was great,fab set up and warm n clean with access to cooking facilities etc. The wigwam we had the window latch was broken so having the little electric heater on was a waste of time,lucky 4 of us shared it.

Hi Margaret. I am glad you all had a fantastic time the reviews in our guest book on site certainly echo this. It is unfortunate the cost of your stay was split between you all rather than taking into account those staying in the ensuite wigwams. We do have a single night supplement however most sites would not allow you... More

We arrived here on Friday early evening. We were met by Lesley who was absolutely lovely. We were shown to our wigwam and where all the facilities were. We weren't there much as we had dinner reservations, got back late and had a 6am start before heading to fort William. Perfect if you wish to stay for a few nights... More

Just home from a wonderful long weekend at Hillycow wigwams! Spotless facilities and great kitchen/games room! The wigwams were perfect for our family of four! We opted for an ensuite wigwam as our children are quite young and it was great! The toilets/shower room on site are, however, right next to the wigwams and are spotless. We paid a little... More

I officiated at a wedding at Hillycows, the facilities are very good, a small number of wooden cabins, with lovely communal spaces - sitting room and kitchen. The views are magnificent, and facilities for children based on the working farm. The location is just outside of the city, within easy reach of transport. The owners are very friendly, and are...

This is the 3rd time I've stayed here and it just gets better. They are constantly making improvements albeit more towards being child friendly (I don't have any) such as a climbing frame/slide but still it's great. The owners are just the most lovely people you could meet. They go above and beyond to help you out if possible. The... More
