Scotland is the home of glamping. The gorgeous scenery, the wildlife that is unique to the region, Scotland makes the perfect place for a glamping trip with a lot for you to get involved with. If you have never been to Scotland before and want to make a visit, going on a glamping retreat would definitely be the right introduction.
If you haven’t already heard of glamping before, think glamorous camping. It is camping with all the amenities and appliances of modern life included, the only difference being that you would be staying in a pod/hut rather than a tent. It is an experience worth having, and should certainly take place in Scotland.
In this article, we are going to discuss our top five places for glamping in Scotland, and why you should visit these places if you are planning on visiting Scotland.
Glen Nevis Campsite
The Glen Nevis Campsite was built initially as a camping park with caravans but has now expanded into the glamping realm due to increasing popularity in the topic. There are many forests, mountains and it is extremely close to the Ben Nevis mountain, the tallest mountain in the British Isles.
There are many beautifully designed pod cabins available for you to stay in, and with a restaurant on-site and a bar with delicious food and drink, the Glen Nevis campsite is certainly somewhere to look out for.
Loch Katrine Eco Lodges
This is a perfect way to enjoy the beauty that the Loch Katrine has to offer. Loch Katrine is a beautiful freshwater reservoir and the eco-lodges look over it perfectly, giving you a sense of nature that you may have never experienced before.
There are many different lodges/pods with different sizes and rooms etc. It is affordable, surrounded by beauty and convenient, with the pods including many different appliances and amenities such as a TV and underfloor heating.
These are one of our favourite glamping businesses as they frequently push the boundaries with what is expected from a glamping site. Luxury Hideaway’s pods are modern, sleek and perfect for a secret getaway. They include a private hot-tub, a deep super king-size bed, a TV and even a circular window with a view, perfect for a quick snap for social media.
Situated close to Crieff in Scotland, there are two other locations opening in the highland region and another in England, so you are not short of locations when looking for your getaway in heaven.
NC500 Pods - Achmelvich Beach
These pods certainly have a place in our heart. Our first location opened, we put a lot of work into this being a special place for our customers to enjoy. The pods are cosy yet modern, with an amazing view of the most stunning coastline imaginable.
There are many activities to participate in around the area, and there are many things to keep you occupied with on Achmelvich Beach, being one of the most beautiful beaches in the country of Scotland and especially in the highland region.
NC500 Pods - Brora
These are our latest pods situated in the Brora region of the Highlands. Along the North Coast 500, it is close to many landmarks and activities in the area for you to get involved with. There is Brora Beach, Dunrobin Castle and even a Brora local distillery all in the same area.
The pods are very similar to the ones at Achmelvich Beach, with a cosy feel to them, yet a sense of high quality and many amenities and appliances included such as WiFi and a smart TV.
