The new ‘Bridgend of Pearsie’ house was built in 1990s, replacing a derelict roads man cottage which had occupied the site.
Set in the foothills of the Angus Glens, Bridgend of Pearsie holds an idyllic position, lying in the valley of the Quharity Burn, with the famous Cat Law Hill to the north and views of the Airlie Monument, erected in memory of the 11th Earl of Airlie who was killed in the Boer War, to the east.
Here at Bridgend of Pearsie Pods, we care deeply for the natural environment. This can be seen throughout the site with well over 700 native trees planted to date; hence the names of our pods: Rowan, Aspen and Maple (three of our favourites!). We aim to plant double this amount of trees in the future.
We take great pride in our bird and small mammal feed stations. Small birds and mammals are abundant, providing that ‘total immersion’ in nature feel. Whilst staying with us, you will no doubt see chaffinches, goldcrest, great, blue and coal tit, woodpeckers, iconic raptors such as red kite and our much loved native species, the red squirrel.
Whether you are set for a day in the hills; enjoy soaking up some local history and culture; or are simply seeking some escapism in the beauty of our natural world, at Bridgend of Pearsie Pods, we aim to provide a luxurious glamping experience and a little place of ‘calm’.
