Specially-designed to be in-keeping with the Invercauld environment.

Invercauld Estate has a history of providing ‘fog houses’ in which people have appreciated the beautiful surroundings of Braemar in the heart of Cairngorms National Park. These fog houses can still be seen around the Estate; look out for their unique structures made of wood with a moss or heather thatched roof.

The origin of the name ‘fog house’ is uncertain. Some say ‘fog’ is Anglicised from the word ‘feugh’, which is a traditional Deeside thatched longhouse. Others state that ‘fog’ derives from the Scots word for the moss that was used to construct the walls and roof. Others have said that because many of Scotland’s fog houses are close to water sources, the spray from nearby waterfalls appears like a fog.

Braemar Caravan Park has six comfortable, wooden A-frame camping pods. All are dog-friendly and one has been designed with access needs in mind. On site heated toilet & shower facilities are a short walk away.
