STAYCATIONS became an instant hit after the lockdown forced the temporary disappearance of international holidays.

More and more Scots have set out to find idyllic places across the country to spend their summer holidays.

Two more bespoke cabins have been added to the long list of bespoke locations to spend the summer in Scotland.

Gordon Campbell and his partner Michael Connors decided to leave Glasgow during the lockdown and ended up in the village of Milton of Buchanan.

He said the couple decided they wanted a summer project and “Les Huttes de Mars was conceived.

“It’s our first project and we live in the cottage next to them so thought because of the idyllic location, close to the famous Conic Hill and the beautiful village of Balmaha.”

“We spent a lot but it was worth doing it right!”

The two huts were built by the neighboring couples and were then placed in the garden using a crane.

The two Mar Huts, the Conic and the Lomond are two “bespoke, handcrafted shepherd’s huts overlooking the Mar River”.

Gordon told the Scottish Sun: “We’re only ten minutes from the Devil’s Pulpit where Highlander was filmed and we love living here so we thought we’d share this beautiful location with guests who want to get away from it all. .”

The village is located between Drymen and Balmaha on the West Highland Way making access to both villages easily accessible.

Situated next to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, the huts are also a short drive from the city of Stirling and surrounding areas.

The couple enjoy the countryside and believe the place is the perfect place for any type of getaway.

Gordon said: “It’s a great place for walkers doing the West Highland Way.

“We also have hens in the garden which adds to the country vibe we are trying to create – quite different from Glasgow.

“We wanted two luxury cabins where guests can disconnect, relax and explore Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park.

The huts are located along the Mar River so it’s a really peaceful place.

The unique cabanas only started taking reservations on August 1 and have everything to make for a relaxing stay, including a hot tub, flat-screen TV, and SMEG cooking equipment.

Gordon said his little cabins were almost fully booked for August and September.

He said: “We opened this week and were blown away by the response – people really love the huts!

“We are now almost full for August and September, which is great! »

There are also a number of activities located nearby including Conic Hill and the mysterious Devils Pulpit, made famous for its appearance in the hit TV show Outlander and the hit movie Highlander.
