Glencoe may get a few rings as hobbit houses arrive

Camping will be possible from early next month at the Glencoe Mountain resort, it has been revealed.

In an email to outdoor lovers, staff at the Glencoe resort revealed its new campsite will be open from July 6th.

There are three ways people can stay, with six cylinder-shaped chalets nicknamed 'hobbit houses' available at £50 a night, each sleeping four.

Alternatively, hook-ups are available for £20 or people can bring tents and camp for £6 per adult, with children allowed in free.

The cafe at the site is open until 22:30 each night, which at this time of year will mean it is barely twilight when it shuts.

Facilities on offer  include archery, a new red Mountain bike track and the chance to ride on the chairlift.

But some campers may find it a good base camp for Munroing, with the chairlift climbing twin Meall a' Bhuridh (3,615 ft) and its neighbour Creise (3,609 ft) being just along the ridge.   

It will also be a very handy location for Glencoe peaks such as Buachaille Etive Mor and Buachaille Etive Beag.ADNFCR-2803-ID-801396544-ADNFCR
