Hidden discreetly within the privacy of Arcadia, home to sculptor Rob Mulholland's Studio and Sculpture Trail an adventure like no other lies waiting to be discovered. Halcyon and Elysium, two luxury glamping cabins, lie in the serenity of The Dell surrounded by majestic trees, flora and fauna and the sounds of School Burn running below. Here at Best we are in awe of world-renowned sculptor and environmental artist / owner of Arcadia, Rob Mulholland for his symmetry with nature. Rob and partner Susan have created a perfect oasis with Arcadia Glamping - a place where people, art and nature come together - a place to relax, unwind, talk, laugh, discover and make new memories.

The natural environment is as important to the owners as their guests enjoyment and their passion to protect the environment is evident throughout your stay. The unique, sustainably crafted cabins - named Halcyon and Elysium - use green energy sources for lighting and heating, and you'll find both cabins equipped with imaginative upcycled, recycled and handmade furniture, fixtures and fittings. Each also comes with a gently illuminated outdoor bath that's ideal for stargazing, a uniquely crafted chimenea, fluffy bathrobes to wrap yourselves in... and a goodie-packed welcome hamper with a bottle of Prosecco!

High insulation values, double-glazed windows and sustainable 100% green energy sources including LED bulbs are all at Arcadia Glamping Cabins. The commitment to creating a sustainable and environmental business extend from recycling facilities to seasoned wood collected from windfall and provided for guests to use in the Chimineas.

All furniture is lovingly handcrafted, upcycled or recycled and textiles have been carefully selected, in line with Arcadia's ambition to reduce their environmental impact. Eco-friendly products for both cabins include Faith in Nature toiletries and Ecover cleaning products as well as recycled toilet roll and kitchen paper. Wherever possible food products for the hampers are sourced locally from The Hub G63 which is a Drymen-based community organisation supporting sustainable living, as well as other local producers.

Passionate about increasing their biodiversity and supporting the ecology of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, Arcadia has chosen to leave many areas uncultivated to encourage, among other species, butterflies, and bees. Plans to incorporate bug hotels and nesting boxes for birds and owls and planting of native species will help to attain this goal.
