Balranald Campsite Glamping Pod


Whilst on holiday this summer in our caravan on North Uist, we stayed at the Balranald Hebridean Holidays campsite on the west coast of the island.

The campsite has a superb setting, right next to the beach at Hougharry with views to the Monach Islands and it’s a great base from which to explore the Uists. Balranald is a small family run business and, with excellent facilities, it’s simply a great place to stay.

We were pitched next to the Corncrake Glamping Pod on the campsite which was certainly popular and, talking to Anne the owner of the campsite one morning, I offered to take some photographs of the Pod. It was a lovely day with great light to show off the exterior of the Pod and there was also an opportunity to photograph the interior of the Pod with the 360° camera.

A 360° camera is ideal for photographing small spaces and also for giving a feel for what the pod is like inside. Setting up the camera on the tripod, I soon had the photograph I needed of the interior of the pod.

Click on the  icon on either of the exterior photographs of the Pod and you will see a high resolution photograph. Clicking on the  icon will take you to the Balranald Campsite Facebook Page.

Whilst photographing the Pod and, as it was such great light, I also took the opportunity to take an aerial photograph of the campsite using my drone. Taken from just over 100m in height, the photograph to the left shows Balranald Campsite and its proximity to the beach at Hougharry.

The interior photograph of the Pod is posted below and clicking on it will bring up the full resolution 360° photograph of the iterior. Pan and zoom to look around the interior of the Pod and if you would like to experience the Pod for yourself, please contact Anne at or phone 01876 510304.
