Teepee Tents in Scotland
Teepee tents are often handcrafted, with natural wooden poles, pegs and cotton canvas covers. They're also known as tipi, kata and lavvu, and have a rich history among Native American and Sami populations.
These pre-pitched traditional tents are based more closely on the Native American designs - taller in height than the Sami Lavvu (or Kata).
- Teepees are environmentally-friendly accommodation as they have a low environmental impact.
- Tipis often have spacious and bright interiors filled with colourful Afghan rugs and cosy sheepskins.
- Some models of tipi have a vent at the top meaning that campfires can be lit within the tipi itself.
Wigwams in Scotland
In traditional Native American cultures, a wigwam is a domed-shaped dwelling. The wigwams in Scotland today are closer to a cosy timber cabin. Built for the 21st century, these wigwams in Scotland are fully insulated and have a basic sleeping space alongside our modern essentials - including the kitchen sink!
Escape to the country and spend a romantic weekend getaway or enjoy a memorable short break with the family in one of these wigwam glamping sites. Relax surrounded by Scotland's stunning nature or get cosy in your cabin after a day spent exploring.
Look out for wigwams with clever, functional design to maximise space. Top-of-the-range models come with electrical sockets, kitchenettes, TVs and more.
