The Charcoal Huts - Isle of Bute

2 units · Glamping8 acres · Scotland
Our Huts are located within the Moss Wood area of Bute Forest - a mixed birch and alder wood that extends up the hillside to the west of the A886 that connects the Rhubodach Ferry to Port Bannatyne and Rothesay. Moss Wood has a range of facilities. Park on the shore-side where the coast can be enjoyed or at the main entrance, and take a walk up through Moss Wood along the Poetry Trail. A steep walk in places, the Poetry Trail is a loop punctuated with places to stop and read, to stop and think. Read nature poetry from throughout the ages, stop at the Blether Stane, or taking the spur to the Viewing Point back south across the Kyles. Moss Wood connects to the West Island Way – take the Poetry Trail and the spur to the Viewing Point – and then take the Stag’s Trod further up (steeply) till you reach the West Island Way. From there, head south towards Port Bannatyne or north along the boundary of the Community Forest. From the viewing point, you can also explore interesting heritage features such as the old WW2 bunker, kayak shelter, Balnakailly settlement, and the SSSI oak woodland.

Hillside Meadows

3 units · Glamping, Motorhomes, Tents5 acres · Fraserburgh, Scotland
If you wish to visit the north-east of Scotland with sandy and rocky beaches, magnificent cliffs, old lighthouses and famous whisky distilleries, Hillside Meadows is the place to stay. You can enjoy near wild camping experience provided by hosts Michal and Gosia, who are developing on site fully off-grid permaculture family farm. Don't be surprised to be welcomed to your temporary home by a wired-haired dachshund Dubby or woken up in the morning by Pablo the Cockrell. There are usually fresh quail and hen eggs available. The site is handily located just off the A981 Strichen-Memsie road. It makes the site easily accessible for camper vans and caravans owners. There might be some noise from passing traffic, but it’s hardly a distraction from your surroundings, rolling hills, open fields and woodlands. It goes without saying that our 5-acres site is ideal for self-sufficient campers. There are just a handful of pitches, well distanced from each other, tucked among the high grass meadows, which gives campers plenty of space and sense of privacy. Park up or pitch your tent. Then you can just relax and concentrate on the important stuff – like getting that campfire going! The basic facilities, including composting toilet, tap water and shower, are available on site if needed. Our quirky camper van Alaska is ready to use as additional accommodation here on site, ideal for one person, couples or families up to 5. Just 3 miles away from our site lies Fraserburgh, a little coastal town with a sandy beach, Museum of Scottish Lighthouses, as well as a range of convenience stores, shops, cafés, restaurants and bars. Within 5 miles from our site, you'll also find Waters of Philorth Nature Reserve, New Aberdour beach, Rattray old lighthouse, Strichen stone circle, Aden Country Park and more.

Cleghorn Farm

11 units · Glamping, Tents250 acres · Lanark, Scotland
*PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE ONLY OPEN FOR WEEKEND BOOKINGS FOR CAMPING. THE CABIN IS AVAILABLE FOR MIDWEEK BOOKINGS* Cleghorn Farm is a mixed farm just north east of the market town of Lanark. Comprised of 250 acres of fields and woodland and bounded to the south by Mouse Water, it is a beautiful spot to get away from it all without having to leave it all behind if you don't want to. The fields are grazed and cultivated but the woodlands are much as they were at the end of the last ice age with spectacular walks along Cleghorn Glen with the chance to see badgers, bats, deer and all manner of birds among the towering pine and beech trees. The Mouse Water (pronounced moose) tumbles down along the edge of the farm and has some glorious pools for swimming, shallows for paddling and some spectacular water falls before it joins the River Clyde.

Glamping in Scotland guide

Overview

Whether you’re scaling the UK’s highest mountain at Ben Nevis, taking a cruise across Loch Ness or Loch Lomond, or hiking, mountain biking, and stargazing in the Cairngorms National ParkScotland’s storied landscapes are made for adventurers. And a plus for some: Camping in Scotland doesn’t have to mean pitching your tent in the wilderness or battling the mist and midges. With glampsites springing up everywhere from Hadrian’s Wall to the Aran Islands, it's possible to enjoy a back-to-nature experience without giving up your home comforts (or your wifi connection). Scotland glamping sites come in all shapes and sizes, from cosy bell tents, tipis, and yurts to purpose-built, eco-friendly glamping pods. Most come fully furnished with heating and private bathrooms, and you might even have a hot tub or firepit. Glampers can also opt for something completely unique and spend the night in a woodland cabin, a converted railway carriage, or a shepherd’s hut.

Glamping Accommodation in Scotland

Scotland is well known for its variable weather, so it's no surprise that many glamping sites in the country involve solid structures, hard roofs, and warm, air-tight setups. There are, however, plenty of summer glamping sites featuring airy bell tents, tipis, and family-sized safari tents. Sturdier but similarly seasonal, yurts are often available well into October, though yurt sites typically close during the coolest months. Whatever the weather, shepherd's huts offer cosy year-round spaces, often with wood-burning stoves and handy kitchen facilities. The likes of wooden-topped gypsy caravans and insulated pods are also popular—you'll also find a vast array of truly imaginative glamping offerings.

Top Things to Do in Scotland

  • Experience the sights, sounds, and excitement of the Edinburgh Festival in August.
  • Catch a ferry out to the Hebrides and Scotland's remote western Isles.
  • Take a wild road trip from glamping site to glamping site on the North Coast 500 route.
  • Climb Munros in Cairngorms National Park.
  • Hunt for monsters on a Loch Ness boat tour.
  • Try winter glamping in the mountains and skiing in the UK's best resorts.
  • Head out for mountain biking in Galloway Forest Park.
  • Enjoy fresh fish and chips on Scotland's east coast.

Navigating Scotland

Scotland's coastline is over three times the length of England's and twice that of France (and that doesn’t even include some 800 islands). With this, the country unsurprisingly presents a fair amount of logistical and geographical challenges. It’s best split into four different parts: the flat Central Lowlands; the rolling hills of the border country of Southern Scotland; the Highlands in the north; and the array of islands scattered off the western and northern coasts. Throw in almost 300 mountains over 3,000 feet, all spread across some of the most vertiginous landscapes in Europe, and you've got a landscape rife for glamping retreats.

Despite this dizzying array of places, getting around in Scotland has never been easier with an integrated network of planes, trains, buses, helicopters, and ferries—plus the odd tram in Edinburgh and Glasgow. We recommend using a car to travel to most glamping sites in Scotland, where rural areas have little public transport.
