Acharn Farm - Wigwams

Acharn Farm is set in the heart of the highlands in the quiet village of Duror in Argyll, midway between Oban and Fort William. The farm is noted as being the former home of James of the Glen (the R.L. Stevenson’s story of Kidnapped).

Acharn is a small, working farm with cattle, sheep and hens and is the perfect base from which to explore some of the most spectacular scenery in Scotland. We are convenient for forest walks, the local cycle track and golf courses with stunning views all around. For people interested in photography, this is the perfect place with its dramatic scenery and abundance of wildlife. Winter sports enthusiasts are also catered for with the Nevis Range Ski Resort and Glencoe Ski Centre only a few miles away.


New in 2010, our two cosy wooden wigwams are set in a small grassy clearing adjacent to an old stone byre which has recently been converted to a new kitchen and shower unit. Each wigwam sleeps up to four people and has electric lighting, a panel heater, standard UK household sockets (3 pin), mattresses and tea/coffee making facilities. Please remember to bring your own bedding and towels. Dogs welcome (by prior arrangement) Barbecues permitted but sorry, no camp fires and not suitable for large groups.


The old stone byre has recently been converted to a kitchen, dining and shower unit for exclusive use by those staying in our wigwams. Facilities include an electric hob, fridge, kettle, microwave oven, toaster, washing area, heating, dining table and chairs, 2 shower cubicles, wash basins and toilet facilities.
