This year we are going to expand the availability of holiday accommodation at Bamff to include a second holiday self catering cottage, the Bamff Lodge, which will be known as the “Beaver Lodge” as it is within yards of what are probably the UK’s best beaver wetlands!
Above two beaver-made pools on the Cateran Trail we are building a beaver hide   “The Bamff Hideaway”. In recognition of the nocturnal habits of beavers and other wildlife, there will be a double bed, which will make this a wonderful “glamping” destination – off the beaten path with wood burning stove and no electricity – it will offer exceptional access for wildlife watchers and photographers.

We will also add 2 beautiful yurts on the campsite at the back of the castle in the spring.Each with their own stove, they will be available for short breaks or longer stays. Washing and extra cooking/ eating  facilities will be available within the castle’s Garden Room, as well as a campfire and barbecue out of doors for use in good weather.

Ecotours will also be on offer, as usual but more so!  Watch this space!

See the special Beaver project at Bamff

Bamff is home to the an extraordinary wetland restoration project using European beavers. The beavers have built around 20 dams on the estate and their habitat is fascinating to visit. The beavers themselves may also be seen on summer evenings. Beaver wetland walks and beaver watching are both available free to occupants of Bamff Old Brewhouse.

See the family of Wild Boar

Bamff is also – uniquely in this part of the world – home to a family of wild boar. During your visit you may see them being fed.

Bamff is beautiful at all times of year.

Bamff offers many pleasant walks for those who enjoy a quiet activity. Woodland walks are pleasant and a gentle exertion will take those so inclined to viewpoints from which a fine panorama of the Eastern Highlands may be enjoyed.
