Scotland is a haven for unspoilt beauty, with areas like ‘Caledonian forest’, woodland that’s completely untouched by humans. It’s as spectacular as it sounds and that’s exactly where we want to take you, and what we want to immerse you in. Even better, we want to put you up amongst the treetops, taking in the birdsong, the speckled light through the tree canopy and the relaxing sound of wind rushing through the woods.
Glamping gives you access to all of the incredible wild found in Scotland. The lofty peaks of Scottish mountains, like Ben Nevis and Cairn Gorm, the wild Caledonian forests peppered across the low and highlands. With such incredible places to explore, when the day’s over, you want to retire to a space just as incredible. We make sure you can, by inspecting every space we have in our collection, so when it’s time to relax, you know there’s nowhere else you’d rather be.
Here’s our take on the best things to do while you’re glamping in Scotland, including some great hiking, winding road trips and surprising sandy beaches.
What can I do at these spaces? Well, what can you do on a glamping holiday? It’s entirely up to you. We know we like an al fresco breakfast under the tree canopy, or an afternoon dip in an outdoor bath. We’re even partial to finishing a book on a treetop veranda or luxuriating in a rainfall shower. Some enjoy a sauna, and others grilling a dinner of foraged ingredients. You might prefer a wild swim or hiking a mountain – at the end of the day, it’s up to you.
What does sustainability mean when it comes to glamping? The glamping industry is by no means perfect when it comes to sustainability. There’s room for improvement, but, it sure beats conventional travel. Our spaces have things like boreholes, rewilding projects, renewable energy sources and reclaimed materials. And it’s not just our spaces. We’re constantly working to try and improve out carbon footprint, and if you’re curious, you can find out a bit more here.
What’s our expertise? Our inspectors have been out roaming the UK and Europe since 2010, checking old, and finding new, unique glamping spaces. We check how easy they are to reach, how well accommodated you are when you get there, and what stuff there is to blow you away when you arrive. We’ve already amazed nearly 200,000 Guests (and a staggering 9,000 dogs) with our collection. When it comes to glamping, we’re not just a company, we’re the company.
Is Scotland really all that special? Scotland has to be one of the most epic parts of the UK. Swathes of it look more like the geography of a Nordic country than they do Britain. There are sky-scraping mountains fringed in snow, and huge lochs stretching into the horizon. The forestry is thick with wildlife, untouched by human hands, as wild as it gets. There is no place like Scotland, and no spaces better to see it, than the ones in our collection.
