A traditional Mongolian yurt at Great Glen Yurts, Torlundy near Fort William, Highlands
Glamp it up on a holiday to Scotland by staying in a yurt, a fun and effortless alternative to traditional camping. Yurts are a quirky accommodation option ideal for an unforgettable break in Scotland’s great outdoors, with many beautiful locations across the country to choose from.
An increasingly popular way of camping is to stay in an authentic yurt. Already pitched so you don’t have to hammer a single peg, they offer a high-end camping experience and are usually comfortably equipped for stress-free outdoors sleeping.
Usually in the rounded Mongolian style, yurts are warm and inviting spaces, often completed with wood burning stoves, comfortable cushions and large patterned rugs underfoot. This type of glamping is well suited to larger groups and families with the more spacious yurts being able to sleep numbers of 10 and over. The open planned space within the yurt can be very versatile as bedding can be folded up to maximize the living area during the day.
Glamping accommodation can provide the ideal base for exploring Scotland; the spread of glamping options across the country means there is a site to suit every holiday experience, from rural country escapes on farmlands to coastal retreats with accessible beaches and loch side hideaways.
Stay at Marthrown of Mabie in Dumfries and Galloway where yurts lie in a secluded spot at the heart of Mabie Forest, a perfect spot for a woodland escape. Often yurts are situated in locations where you’ll find ample things to see and do. At Loch Tay Highland Lodges spend your break in a yurt in the peaceful foothills of Ben Lawers; close to the shore of Loch Tay and ideal for either a relaxing break or an action packed holiday. Fishing and wildlife watching are available on site and for those keen for something with a faster pace whitewater rafting, quad biking and canyoning are all available close by.
