Welcome back

Welcome back to Spoke ‘n’ Boot.

Due to the COVID pandemic, we closed our doors in March 2020 – but are now re-opening at the end of June 2021 and are taking bookings.

You’ll find our contact details at the bottom of every page on this website.

To keep you safe, we’ve taken on guidance from the Scottish Government, VisitScotland and industry advisors. As part of the changes we have greatly reduced our availability and footfall this season.

Please take time to read our special safety page here.

Dogs are welcome. A maximum of two dogs per group are welcome. Please bring your own poo bags and keep the area clean. We make a small additional charge of £2.50 per dog, per day.

If you have questions, please get in touch. Email us: spokenbootfalkirk@gmail.com

Extra pampering for Passport holders

Holders of special John Muir Way Passports get extra treats for free at Spoke ‘n’ Boot.

If you have one of these prized documents – which cost £5 each – you can opt for an extra bit of pampering.

Choose from:

* a mouth-watering ice lolly on arrival or
* a sleep enducing hot chocolate (with cream and marshmallows if you want), delivered just before you go to bed.

The John Muir Way Passports help walkers and cyclists record their achievements completing the 134 mile coast-to-coast trail. The documents are available for sale at either end of the trail at Helensburgh and Dunbar and at stops along the way. Walkers and cyclists can pop into venues along the route to get stamps to record the successful completion of different sections. Once you have collected all ten stamps you can claim a completer certificate.

Simpy the best

Travel bloggers “Wander In Two” – Jamie Craig and Ivana Kostovich – have praised “Spoke ‘n’ Boot, describing it as “one of the coolest, quirkiest and best campsites in Scotland”.

In a post, they said: “Sandra and Stuart were just the best hosts we could have hoped for. Warm, friendly and attentive. It really felt like we were visiting a family member who wanted to make our stay as comfortable as possible. They had thought of everything so we didn’t have to.

“Whether it was handing us a freshly poured G&T, making sure we had wood for the fire, or ensuring we had enough layers for a cozy night sleep in the pod, Sandra and Stuart were impeccable hosts.”
