            The SpaceOur Tipi is up during the spring, summer and autumn months to offer guests a place to stay in our beautiful sanctuary and be close to nature. When the centre closes at 5pm you will be left to soak up the tranquillity of this special spot. Mats and cushions will be laid out around with folding futon chair/beds - the tipi fits 4 adults or 2 adults and 3 children. The central fire bowl is supplied with a store of dry firewood for you to use and there are instructions for how to use the smoke cover. We provide basic bedding (sleeping bags and extra blankets) or you are welcome to bring your own. Scottish summer nights can be chilly, so we recommend warm sleeping bags or duvets to make sure you get a good night's sleep. You can access shower facilities in the centre outwith public opening hours (before 10 am and after 6pm). We provide towels for your stay. Guest AccessThe Tipi will be all yours, a spacious sanctum for one person or a cosy sleepover for up to four adults, or two adults and three children. The centre, cafe and other businesses are open from 10:30am to 5pm each day so there will be visitors around during the day. There is 24 hour access to a toilet and access to a shower strictly before 10am only. Please do not leave valuables unattended in the tipi. Interaction with GuestsYou can check in at the shop from 10:30am to 5pm Tuesday to Sunday inclusive. The centre is closed on Mondays so you can depart on a Monday but not arrive except by special arrangement. Arrivals outside of 10:30am to 5pm are possible with prior arrangement. You will have a phone number for a member of staff to help you with any queries or problems out of hours . You are welcome to interact with the centre as much or as little as you like. We would love to arrange meals, treatments or activities for you but you are also welcome to simply use it as your own base. We have great feedback from guests like this: "Lovely hosts, really helpful and organised an amazing massage for us in the treatment centre. The tipi is very cosy and comfortable... we were toasty after getting the fire going (unlimited wood supplied). The surrounding grounds are very picturesque and there is a nice little woodland walk that starts just by the tipi... this would be an amazing place for a quiet retreat. If you want any food or supplies whilst staying here, there is the small village of Drymen just 5 minutes down the road, which has a few recommended eating places and a convenience store. On the whole, highly recommended!" Getting AroundPublic transportation does come past a couple of times a day but to make the most of the lovely area we are in we recommend coming by car. We have lots of parking onsite and campervans are welcome. Directions If you are using Sat Nav, our postcode is G63 0NF however, not all systems will get you right to the centre, so best to take a note of the directions below for the last little bit of your journey! From Glasgow direction, the centre is just under 2 miles past Drymen on the A811, or about 4 miles past the signpost for Killearn on the A81 (don’t take the turn-off for Killearn though, keep on the A81). A809 / A811 The A809 is signposted to Drymen, and runs from Glasgow through Bearsden and over the Stockie Muir (past the Queen’s View and the Carbeth Inn), where it joins the A811. Coming from the Erskine Bridge direction follow the A811 through Balloch and Gartocharn, signed to Stirling and Drymen. Follow the road to Drymen, but bypass the village by going straight on rather than turning off left. You will pass a few houses and a sign on the right as you leave the Trossachs National Park, drive on for half a mile after that. Look out for a farmhouse (Balfunning Douglas) on the left, the entrance to Balfunning is directly opposite, there is a lodge house with a little turret, a bus stop and various signs for TIr na nOg. Follow the driveway to the stable block, the next building after the lodge house. A81 Is signposted to Aberfoyle, and runs through Bearsden, Milngavie, Strathblane and on towards Killearn. Between Strathblane/Blanefield and Killearn, you will pass the Glengoyne distillery, and shortly after that you will see the signpost to Killearn. Don’t take it, stay on the A81, go past the Beech Tree Inn and follow the road straight on. Go straight through the roundabout at Blane Smithy. You will come to a little bridge and shortly after that you will see a white farmhouse up the hill on the left hand side (Clachanry Farm). At the next left, there is a white sign (Unsuitable for vehicles over 7.5 tonnes), and a sign for Tir na nOg. Turn left here and follow the road up to the very top of the hill (be careful at the junction you’ll come to just after you pass a red sandstone lodgehouse). PLEASE DO NOT ENTER AT THE EAST ENTRANCE (SIGNED PRIVATE PROPERTY, NO ACCESS), THIS IS A PRIVATE DRIVEWAY. Turn left on to the main road (towards Drymen), and then take the next left, just round the corner, at the small lodge house with the turret, you'll see our signs. The Stables are the next building down the driveway, on the left hand side. Parking space is available on both sides of the buildings. A81 From Stirling . Edinburgh / Perth direction - M9 Take the Loch Lomond exit from the M9 (junction - there’s a sign for the Safari Park). Follow signs for Callander/ Doune A84. Carr on on the A84 for a few miles until you pass the Safari Park on the right hand side. Take the left turn after this towards Gargunnock (B8075 ). You will come to a junction with the main road A811, turn right towards Glasgow/ Erskine Bridge/ Loch Lomond. Stay on this road for 15-16 miles until you reach a junction with the A81. You need to turn left and then immediately move into the right hand turn lane and follow the A811 towards Drymen. You will pass a house with yellow gables, and half a mile further on there will be a road on the left with a sign (unsuitable for vehicles over 7.5 tonnes). Just around the next corner turn first left (opposite Balfunning Douglas farmhouse) into the driveway for Balfunning, you should see our signs. The Stables are the next building down the driveway, on the left hand side. Parking space is available on the far side of the buildings. Public Transport - this isn't hugely easy, but it's not impossible! There are infrequent buses that pass our driveway: Our bus stop is at BALFUNNING (between Balfron Station and Drymen). Timetable: Service 8 / C8 From Glasgow From Stirling 8 / C8 There are much more regular services such as the B10 to Balfron from Glasgow and Stirling, we are then a short taxi ride away: Timetables can be found at Local Taxis - numbers provided once booking completed Minnie's Cabs, Balfron Drymen Taxis Buchanan Cabs Current Timetables South East & Central Scotland - First Group PLC Other Things to NoteWith the entrance and the smoke-hole closed over the Tipi will be dry - make sure you set it as per the instruction booklet before going to sleep. Fires should not be left lit during the night. As with any camping experience nature is all around you so be prepared for visiting birds, insects and other Tir na nOg creatures.
