Camping. It isn’t for everyone. Do you dread the prospect of the uneven ground, the 'wild' animals, the soggy tent and the mysterious noises through the night? Fear not, there is a truly comfortable way to enjoy the great outdoors, without the stresses of getting back to nature. It’s called glamping!

What is glamping?

One of the most recent travel trends, this phenomenon combines a little slice of glamour and luxury with traditional camping. So, you may find yourself deep in the wilderness but your accommodation will provide you with sockets for hairdryers and iPods, a proper bed, a TV and a fridge to make your stay much more comfortable.

Glamping comes in many different forms, including: camping pods, wigwams, treehouses, tipis and yurts. Your place to stay can vary from basic and comfortable to simply grand and luxurious.

Funky features & stunning Scottish scenery

If you go towards the higher end of the scale, your glamping retreat might even include some of these features:

  • Hot tub
  • Comfortable beds and inviting rustic décor
  • Sauna
  • Wood burning stove
  • Underfloor heating

You can go glamping deep in the heart of Scotland’s forests, on the bonnie banks of one of our stunning lochs and at several coastal and rural spots too. This type of holiday brings you much closer to the action, as many providers also offer activities, walks and cycle rides close to where you sleep.
