Spend a night (or two, or three!) glamping under canvas in Scotland and wake up to a bright new morning in a gorgeously scenic location – no tent pegs required!
Why should I choose a yurt?
- They offer a high-end glamping experience and are usually comfortably equipped for stress-free outdoor sleeping.
- Unlike wild camping, yurts are already pitched and are often close to places where you can take a hot shower, charge your phone or connect to WiFi.
- There are lots of locations in Scotland where you can find yurts, from rural country escapes on farmlands to coastal retreats with accessible beaches and loch side hideaways.
What is a yurt?
Yurts are the traditional dwellings of central Asian nomads and have been in use for at least 3,000 years. Round and portable, traditional yurts are made up of a wooden frame covered in a layer of felt and possibly canvas, making them watertight and sturdy.
What can I expect at a yurt?
- Warm and inviting glamping accommodation in a round, usually Mongolian style, yurt.
- A well-furnished interior, with features such as a wood burning stove, cosy bed, comfortable cushions and large patterned rugs.
- Ample things to see and do nearby, from woodland walks to short strolls into town.
