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 in Fife is said to be one of the most scenic roads on Scotland's east coast. But directly above it, up an exhilarating single-track road from Logie Farm, the views are even better –  and fortunately for us all that's  the exact location of The Snug, a luxury glamping site like no other.

Situated among high grassy meadows, the award-winning brand-new new pods at The Snug make for a cosy and luxurious place to stay, with en-suite shower wetrooms, underfloor heating, mood lighting and wireless tech. Logie Farm is formerly home to a series of historic derelict bothies used by salmon fishermen on the Tay, and owners Jo and Andrew landed on the idea of installing these locally made pods as luxurious, scenic boltholes for two, each equipped with the sort of the facilities you expect of a five-star hotel room – Nespresso coffee machines, super-king-sized beds and black-out blinds as well as a fridge, TV and built-in sound system. The stand-out feature, though, is the large circular window which offers ever-present panoramic views of the River Tay far below.

Logie means ‘meadow land’ in Gaelic and the immediate surroundings are grazed by a herd of cattle and flock of Swiss Valais Blacknose sheep – an important part of Andrew and Jo’s approach to sustainable farming, which has also seen them recently build a pond, and, in the year they first opened the site, plant some 6500 hedge plants. Meanwhile the view tries its hardest to draw you out to explore – the road down below is part of a marked cycle route (777) and, a little further up the slope the Fife Coastal Path passes by, tracking a similar elevation to the pods before climbing up to Norman's Law hill for even more 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.
