A luxuriously cosy shepherds hut in the Trossachs

Welcome

Sitting in the far corner of the field at Keepers Cottage, the Poachers Hut is a hand-built 7m Shepherds Hut with its very own hot tub, wood fired pizza oven, large fire pit and BBQ. The shepherds hut has mains water and electricity, en-suite with shower and flushing toilet, planet friendly shampoo and shower gel. It is fully insulated, has a comfortable double bed with quality mattress, bedding and soft furnishings, a small kitchen, a cute wood burner with wood and kindling supplied, comfy seats and small table. There is a smart TV with Netflix, Alexa, WIFI and heating, and the hut has a small fridge, microwave, toaster, electric saute pan, kettle and Nespresso coffee machine.

You will find a generous welcome hamper (enough for breakfast) including fresh eggs from our hens and some home-made produce. The ‘always ready’ hot tub with massage jets is the perfect place to relax.  Wood and charcoal for the fire pit/BBQ is provided along with toasting forks and popcorn pan. You will also find towels and flip flops for the hot tub. There is a selection of coffee, tea (incl decaf), condiments, marshmallows (incl veg), popcorn etc.

 We are in big sky country and with no noise or light pollution, cloud and star gazing is magical here, especially from the hut tub or around the fire pit in the comfortable whisky barrel chairs wrapped in cosy blankets (with a dram perhaps!).   And you can cook delicious pizzas in the wood fired pizza oven. 

The Poachers Hut is a special boutique-hotel style outdoor retreat in the stunning Trossachs, luxury glamping at its best. 

Perfect for mini-moons and a stay makes a wonderful gift. 

We look forward to welcoming you.

I cannot recommend The Poachers Hut highly enough! The hut itself was lovely and had everything we needed and more for a great stay, with lots of little touches and a very generous welcome hamper! The location is great, and provided a wonderful getaway from city life - nothing like sitting in the hot tub and watching the stars in total peace and quiet 😌 Lorna & Ray were lovely too - giving us a warm welcome on arrival, making sure we had everything we needed, and coming out to say goodbye as we left. And of course, the pizza oven! Lovely touch, easy to use (following instructions from Lorna & Ray) and made for a delicious dinner 😄

If 6 star was an option this is what we would have chosen ! Without doubt the best Air bnb we have stayed in so far. All the subtle personal touches just made our stay so special. From the home made baking in our welcome pack to the initials printed in the butter ! It was a real home from home, we could have turned up with nothing ! The amenities were amazing, everything you could ask for. The perfect mixture of luxury, nature and a ‘homely’ feeling. And what made it even better was our wonderful hosts who gave us the perfect amount of privacy but were so warm and welcoming too. We can’t wait to come back again this year, sooner rather than later. Xo

Trying to think of how to write a review that sums up the poachers hut enough. I am always wary when people “gush” over a place and give 5 stars for everything, well I now understand! The poachers hut, Lorna and Ray really are 5 star. There is nothing to criticise, it’s as simple as that. The area is beautiful, literally just outside Stirling but could be in the middle of nowhere, so so quiet and idyllic. The Shepard’s hut is immaculate and perfectly thought out, the decor is stunning, it is so well thought out and stocked - there are so many wonderful wonderful special little touches that o don’t want to describe too much and spoil the surprise for anyone booking - but these are second to none. Welcome pack is so informative there is nothing that hasn’t been thought of. The hot tub, pizza oven and fire pit are fabulous accessories but even if weather is bad and these can’t be used the Shepard’s hut is enough. Lorna and Ray are the perfect hosts, friendly, informative and know that guests are here to unwind, relax or celebrate so keep contact to a minimal and are super respectful of your privacy - they make you feel so comfortable and for that I cannot thank them enough ☺️This was a last minute booking to get away and ready-stress-which we did for a full 2 days - perfect! The breakfast pack is simple stunning and you will never eat everything, the fresh eggs from the hens next to the hut were lovely. Nick Nairns restaurant literally a 5 minute drive away and is a lovely restaurant (Ray tells a good story of when he and Nick were boys- seemingly Nick Nairn couldn’t boil an egg in his youth lol) This really Is a hidden gem and worthy of all the 5 star reviews- I can’t rate it high enough and can only encourage you try it for yourself, I can guarantee you an amazing stay. It’s everything it says and more.

We had an absolutely wonderful time enjoying the Scottish countryside, roasting marshmallows and relaxing in the hot tub. Lorna and Ray are wonderful hosts, cheerful, kind and great at what they do. We were able to feed the chickens in the morning, pet the goats and the sheep and cuddle their cats. The cabin is adorable and impeccably cleaned. We hope to come back soon!

I cannot put into words how wonderful this spot is. Wonderful hosts in a beautiful setting, with the most magic of huts. The hot tub with the stars was magical, and those pizza’s… delicious!! Thank you so much for a magical and recharging stay!

This stay was everything we could have wanted, thank you! The Poachers Hut is immaculately clean and created with more thoughtful touches than we can list! Lorna and Ray have created a little haven which promises a wonderful stay regardless of the weather or time of year. Everything was super easy and we felt super spoiled, I'm sure we'll be back!

We had such an incredible stay! The property is one of a kind and all of the little touches that Lorna and Ray both do are what make it so special! The pizza oven, fire pit and hot tub were fab but all of the small things like the initials in the butter, the hamper and the pancakes for breakfast made the stay. Couldn’t recommend this place more and we will be back! It really is the perfect spot, never thought we would be having a BBQ in November in freezing fog but it was fab!! Thank you Lorna and Ray for making our stay so special

The best part of our trip by far! This place is truly remarkable. Lorna and Ray have thought through every detail to make the Poacher’s Hut comfortable, warm, and so much more. They are fantastic hosts - there as much as you need them, yet never imposing. Even just spending a few nights there, I could go on and on, but my advice: book it while you can!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay - everything was as good, if not better, than all the amazing reviews we read beforehand. The personalised touches that Lorna and Ray offer make you feel so welcome from the moment you arrive. The location is beautiful, the hut is so cosy and we especially enjoyed al fresco dining with the fire pit and pizza oven to keep us warm. Not to mention the hot tub!! Wish we’d stayed longer, will definitely be back.

The Poachers hut is the perfect Romantic place to visit . The Hut has everything you need. The outside space is amazing, however we could not enjoy it because of the rain. we did cook our pizza's in the pizza oven and because we listened to the instructions our puzza's were perfect. The hot tub was brilliant too. There is nothing i can say that is negative. i would highly reccomend this little gem. Thank you Lorna and Ray for thinking of everything that makes the stay so special 💖
