The loch-side tipi at Galloway Activity Centre, Dumfries & Galloway
Scotland has stunning natural landscapes and one the best ways to enjoy these surroundings is on a camping holiday. For a fun and memorable break, why not try staying in a tipi where you will be inspired to take advantage of the great outdoors.
Whether you prefer to call it a tipi, teepee or even a kata, staying in pre-pitched traditional tents offers a unique experience in Scotland’s great outdoors. Often hand-crafted with natural wooden poles and pegs and cotton canvas covers, the tipi provides environmentally-friendly accommodation with a low environmental impact and an authentic back-to-nature break. Many tipis across Scotland are based on Native American designs and are the perfect places to stay for those who are keen to experience a sense of adventure.
Spacious and bright, you’ll find every comfort to make your stay really enjoyable; from colourful Afghan rugs and cosy sheepskins to the essentials, such as cooking utensils, plates and cutlery which are usually provided. Tipis are designed to be lived in so some models have a vent at the top meaning that campfires can be lit within the tipi itself. For a touch of luxury, some sites offer special hampers, breakfasts and BBQ packs stocked with local produce.
Tipis can be found nestled in a number of stunning locations across Scotland. At the Galloway Activity Centre in Dumfries and Galloway, for instance, 6-person tipis are idyllically positioned on the banks of Loch Ken with fantastic views stretching across the loch; the perfect place to relax and unwind after a busy day exploring the outdoors or taking part in exhilarating adventure activities like sailing, windsurfing, powerboating and abseiling.
Located in an idyllic spot right on the shores of Loch Lomond, Cashel campsite enjoys uninterrupted stunning views across the tranquil waters, incorporating Luss to the west and the mountains that lay either side.
