If you’re looking for an unforgettable getaway, look no further than Scotland. The stunning country is home to some of the most enchanting glamping spots in the world. From secluded lochs and rolling hills to dramatic coastlines and lively cities, Scotland has something for everyone.

In this article, we will explore five of the best glamping spots in Scotland. It is worth noting, however, that if you’re flying to Scotland, it’s worthwhile learning more about car hire at Edinburgh Airport.

Shepherds Huts, Craigduckie Farm, Fife

From ramshackle tin structures, shepherds’ huts have come a long way since they were intended to rest while herds people tended to their sheep. Craigduckie’s Shepherd’s Huts offer more comforts than straw mattresses on the floor and made-up lamb pens. They have plush double beds, hot showers, farrow and ball colour schemes, charging ports, chic kitchens, as well as wood stoves for chilly nights.

There will be a tasty slice of homemade cake to greet you when you arrive at your shepherd’s hut. Watch the birds flying across Loch Fitty in front of you while you drink a cup of tea or a hot chocolate. The firepit barbecue system is all set up for you to begin cooking outside as evening falls – and you can roast marshmallows at the same time.

You can cook in the hut’s kitchen if the weather is not cooperating. The kitchen has a small stove, oven and refrigerator.

Cairngorm Bothies, Cairngorm, Highlands

These bothies are definitely worth visiting if you’re looking for an unforgettable glamping experience in Scotland. Located in the midst of the Cairngorms National Park, the distinctive glamping spot offers guests a chance to reconnect with nature.

Whether you are seeking for quaint accommodations or a spacious lodge, the bothies have something for everyone. Plus, there’s no shortage of outdoor activities to enjoy in the area, including hiking, biking and bird watching.

Glenshee Treehouses, Blairgowrie, Angus

For an unusual glamping stay, look no further than Scotland’s Glenshee Treehouses. A tranquil getaway in the foothills of the Cairngorm Mountains, the treehouses offer stunning views of the surrounding countryside. Plus there are no shortage of outdoor activities nearby.

Inside, a Glenshee Treehouse is luxuriously appointed with all the amenities you would expect from a top-notch glamping experience. There’s a comfortable king-size bed, a wood-burning stove for chilly nights and even a hot tub on the deck for relaxing under the stars.

The Loft, Kinloss, Moray

The Loft is one of a number of clamping options on a campsite located in beautiful Moray Speyside. The site is also a 388-acre working farm. Moray Speyside is whisky country, with more than 60 distilleries.

You can enjoy farm walks, adventure activities or just chill out and rest in a lovely country setting.

Ardkinglas Woodland Camping, Cairndow, Cowal peninsula

Ardkinglas Woodland Camping is found in the picturesque landscape of Argyll Forest Park and offers visitors a special camping environment among some of Scotland’s oldest trees. The camp features bell tents with private bathrooms, as well as a communal kitchen and dining area.

Camping at Ardkinglas Woodland Camping is an experience like no other, with its stunning surroundings that include picturesque lochs, magnificent hills and ancient trees. The campsite has a variety of accommodation options to suit all budgets, from basic camping facilities for those who prefer the outdoors to eco-friendly camps and cabins that are perfect for couples or families looking for some luxury during their stay.

It also offers guests access to nearby beaches where they can relax while enjoying views over Loch Fyne towards the Isle of Mull in one direction or the Isle of Arran across the water. There is a small loch on-site for fishing (or just admiring).

If you’re looking for an unforgettable glamping getaway in Scotland, Ardkinglas Woodland Camping is definitely worth considering.
