the place

Glen Dye is a private estate of around 30,000 acres and our cabins and cottages sit slap bang at its centre, surrounded by wilderness forest and moorland on the banks of the River Dye. The location is fabled; watched over by the massive granite tor of Clochnaben and at the northern end of the Cairn o Mount mountain pass. This is where the Howe of the Mearns finally gives in to the Highland boundary fault; wild, beautiful and very, very quiet. 


THE FOOD

The food at Camp Glen Dye is an event in itself. We take campfire cooking to a whole new level, using the world-famous produce available on our doorstep to create unforgettable wild feasts. Our chefs and cooks do spectacular things over fire - from pop-up supper clubs with the legendary Free Company to wood-fired pizzas with foraged toppings. Food is a main stage headliner at Glen Dye! 

 Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included in your Camp Glen Dye ticket. 

THE ACCOMMODATION

We have three perfect holiday cottages each with outdoor, woodfired hot tubs and one with its own private cabin. We have also converted the old estate sawmill into a private outdoors paradise; here you’ll find a 1955 Airstream with a giant bed, a fully restored foresters’ kitchen and sitting room, a spectacular outdoor shower and a woodfired hot tub. These cabins and cottages combine jaw dropping wild locations with perfect comfort and style.

THE PEOPLE

We provide the setting, the activities and the food, but it’s the people who really make Camp Glen Dye. Is there anything better than sitting around a campfire with like-minded folk, putting the world to rights with a wee dram in hand? Great company is what you bring and you bring it in spades; we’re blessed to have a truly wonderful bunch of folk join us each time. With only 30 places on every camp, our focus is on intimate experiences and meaningful connections.
