Luxury glamping pods with all mod cons, with an elevated position overlooking the River Tay.

With sweeping views across the River Tay to the Sidlaw Hills in the north, the Barony Road, between Newburgh and Wormit is said to be one of the most scenic roads in Fife. Turn off it, though, on to the single-lane track opposite Logie Farm, and something magical happens. Slowly you begin to ascend until, a couple of minutes later, you’re almost 400 metres above the farm with surely some of the finest views for miles. It’s the perfect vantage point for taking it all in. And it’s the exact location of The Snug, a new glamping site first opening in 2021.

Home to a collection of modern glamping pods, The Snug, in its elevated position amongst grassy meadows, is an ode to the farm’s history as well as a cosy place for glampers to stay. Long before these modern pods, which come with en-suite shower rooms, underfloor heating, mood lighting and wireless tech, there were modest bothies on the farm, used by salmon fishermen on the Tay. Owners Jo and Andrew were unable to safely restore them, so landed on the idea of installing the glamping pods instead, built nearby in Central Scotland and with Harris Tweed touches inside.

The pods are certainly luxurious places to stay. In short, they have all the facilities you might expect of a hotel room, including a Nespresso coffee machine and a super-king-sized bed. Black-out blinds ensure a good night’s sleep and there’s a fridge, a television and built-in sound system. The stand out feature, though, comes not in the furnishings but in the form of the large circular window at the northern end, which offers ever-present views of the River Tay.

Logie means ‘meadow land’ in Gaelic and the immediate surroundings are grazed by a herd of cattle and flock of Swiss Valais Blacknose sheep – the latter have been dubbed ‘the world’s cutest sheep’ and Jock, Hamish, Tavish and the gang in the neighbouring meadow are certainly worthy of a photograph or two. They’re an important part of Andrew and Jo’s approach to sustainable and forward-thinking farming, which has also seen them recently build a pond and, in the year they first opened the site, plant some 6,500 hedge plants alone.

The view tries its hardest to draw you back away from the glamping site and out to explore. The road down below is part of a marked cycle route (Route 777) and, a little further up the slope behind the pods, passes the Fife Coastal Path, which tracks a similar elevation to the glamping site before climbing to the top of Norman's Law hill for panoramic vistas. By car, meanwhile, it’s half an hour to Perth, Dundee and the historic town of St Andrews and 25 minutes to Falkland and the Lomond Hills, where some of the most recent series of Outlander was filmed.

Nearby

The Snug is just a few hundred yards from the Fife Coastal Path, which, at the point it passes the glamping site, isn't actually by the waterside but curves around Glenduckie Hill and stays inland, taking in awe-inspiring views on the top of Norman's Law hill and continuing all the way to ruined Balmerino Abbey (01721 722502), six miles away. Along with the coastal path, the road below The Snug is also part of the national cycle network (route 777), which follows the coast between Newburgh (four miles; 20 minutes or so on the bike) and Dundee (13 miles; over an hour on the bike). The town of Newburgh has local grocery shops, a medical centre, a museum (01334 659328), a butchers, bakers, post office, takeaways and an art gallery (01337 842323). En-route there is also the Lindores Abbey Distillery and Visitor Centre (01337 842547; just over five minutes' drive or an hour's walk), where regular tours help you learn about the history of the abbey, the monks, William Wallace and, of course, the whisky. Further afield, there's a good wealth of options within a half hour drive: Historic St Andrews, with it's quaint town centre, old golf course, abbey ruins and cathedral (01334 472563); Dundee, vibrant and bustling and home to the Victoria and Albert Museum (01382 411611); and Perth, another lively spot and the gateway to Scotland's famous North Coast 500 route.

Food & Drink

There's nothing within easy walking distance of The Snug but it takes less than 10 minutes to drive into Newburgh, where you can stock up at the shops or grab a bite to eat at Café Alice (07999 067484) or, five minutes beyond in Abernethy, at the excellent Crees Inn (01738 851086), a picturesque former farmhouse in the shadow of Abernethy Tower.

Getting There

From Perth or Edinburgh, take Junction Nine off the M90 at Bridge of Earn and follow the A913 to Newburgh. Continue through the town centre before bearing left down Abbey Road just before the petrol station/ butter cup cafe. Continue on this unclassified road for about three miles. You will see the entrance to Logie Farm steading on your left hand side amidst some trees. The Snug entrance is on the right hand side of the road, adjacent to the Logie Farm entrance. Follow the road up the hillside (taking care to drive in a low gear) through the woodland and follow the signs to the Snug site.

From Dundee, follow the A92 south, turning right shortly after Rathillet (signposted to Hazleton) and continue for five miles. The entrance to Logie is on the right shortly after the small row of cottages. The Snug entrance will be on your left hand side, adjacent to the Logie Farm entrance. Turn left and follow the road up the hillside (taking care to drive in a low gear) through the woodland and follow the signs to the Snug site.

If you want to use SatNav, this works, but use the postcode (KY14 6HL) rather than the farm name, as there is another Logie Farm in the vicinity.

There is no public transport in the immediate vicinity. Newburgh is on a regular bus route but the Snug is a good three miles from the nearest reliable stop.

Incredible!

Such a beautiful and incredible wee spot. The Snug was so nice, with such a lot of little hidden goodies! The BBQ and fire pit were great. Could have stayed there so much longer than a night. Will definitely be back! Thanks Jo and Andy!
