A warm soak in the fresh air under the stars is glamping nirvana. Scotland ups the ante even further with some of the most spectacular natural backdrops we’ve ever set eyes on. Steam away any lingering stress in your hot tub as you gaze out at lochs, mountains, wild sandy beaches and hauntingly beautiful castles. You’ll be on a natural high before you’ve sipped your first dram of whiskey.
Our unique Scottish glamping places are found in some of the country’s most ruggedly remote spots. We inspect each one personally to make sure they’re as comfy and well-equipped as they are beautifully designed. We’ve got everything from converted horseboxes and yurts to luxury treehouses and atmospheric bothies. What they’ve all got in common is passionate owners who put an unhealthy amount of thought into the perfect position of the hot tub to maximise those views.
Always look for instructions from the owner on the specific type at the space, but here are a few tips to get your hot tub technique up to a simmer before you arrive.
Breathe in the fresh air, crack open the bubbles and make new memories. Cuddling up together in a warm outdoor hot tub under a sparkling blanket of stars will be the icing on the cake (or the skylight in the treehouse).
What’s it like to stay at a glamping place with a hot tub?
Watch the spectacle of the Northern Lights dancing overhead as you luxuriate in your hot tub under big skies. Spend invigorating days hiking through peaceful glens and beautiful pine forests breathing in the crisp air, then head to the coast to spot dolphins and seals. Scotland is escapism that feels like coming home. There’s a profound peace in the sheer majesty and staying in a secluded retreat ensures the spell is never broken.

About Canopy & Stars’ expertise
Fuelled by haggis, mince and tatties, we’ve explored the far reaches of Scotland to bring you the best glamping getaways. We’re a small team of discerning travellers and we only select unique spaces where you can switch off, relax completely and reconnect with nature. The beds are always cosy and we like to throw in a hot tub to make your break feel extra indulgent.
What makes Scotland so special?
Scotland does things on a grand scale – the skies look bigger, the mountains are taller and the incredible wildlife includes white-tailed eagles, red deer, puffins and that elusive loch-dwelling monster. You can hike, sail and cycle in the summer, ski and snowboard in the winter and enjoy fantastic arts, culture and heritage all year round. If you enjoy a tipple, there always seems to be a whiskey, gin or brewery tour within staggering distance.
