A little bit of weekend glamping

Wigwam at Loch Tay Highland Lodges

The word ‘wigwam’ is quite fun to say and as it turns out, they’re even more fun to stay in. Last weekend I packed up the car and headed to Loch Tay, and more specifically Loch Tay Highland Lodges, for a slight alternative to pitching up the old festival tent.

Loch TayThey’re like a mix between a lodge, a tent and a really fancy garden shed. Imagine staying in a large wooden shed (bare with me), but with comfy beds, windows, a coffee table, fridge, microwave, kettle, toaster and a TV! Each wigwam has a picnic table, a BBQ outside and there is a brand new kitchen and shower block onsite.

The site is located near Killin and on the shores of the stunning Loch Tay. The site has a bar/restaurant and offers a wide selection of outdoor activities including putting, archery, fishing, mountain biking and more.

We hired a motor boat from the nearby village of Kenmore and spent the afternoon on the loch getting overtaken by much faster boats… we then spent the rest of the day soaking up the sunshine on the brilliant beach at Kenmore, which is right by the impressive Scottish Crannog Centre.

There’s various wigwams across Scotland that you can stay in and if you’re into your glamping or just want to try something a bit different, then you’re guaranteed to have a lot of fun. Lesson learned for next time though, remember to bring spoons and bowls. Eating cereal in the mornings using a cup and a fork is just wrong.
