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.

The pods are suited primarily for couples wanting that get-away-from it all experience.

Due to the location of the pod site being on a working farm, and the risk dogs in particular could pose to the surrounding livestock, we cannot allow pets at present. Some pets could also disturb other guests who dont have pets. We are trying to find a balance though and are working on this.  In time we aim to have a few pet friendly pods at one end of the site.

The site is not suited for anyone with a fear of heights.

From Dundee, follow the A92 south turning right shortly after Rathillet (signposted to Hazleton) and continue for 5 miles.
