When it comes to glamping in the UK, nowhere has a greater abundance of untouched wild beauty and verdant scenery than Scotland, with everything from historic castles to the famed wild hills and sparkling lochs of the Highlands. These are some of our favourite spots to pitch up your bell tent in Scotland.
Glampotel Paxton House
We began right on the border, with this fantastic spot seated in the wooded grounds of Paxton House in Berwickshire. This historic manor is seated just on the banks of the River Tweed, offering beautiful views. And the Glampotel itself is part of a renowned worldwide chain of eco-tourism glamping experiences. Meaning you’ll be treated to the very best in terms of luxury and amenities, like The Ritz rendered in canvas.
Loch Ken Eco Bothies
Scotland’s Lochs are among its most famous, and most striking attractions, and Loch Ken in the southwest is no exception, teeming with wildlife and startling scenery, the area is also a part of the U.K’s first Dark Sky Park. Meaning you can relax under the cover of a blanket of stars. Some of the amenities on the site include a wood-burning stove, fully equipped kitchen, and private decking with a wood-fired hot tub.
Marthrown Of Mabie
This truly unique UK glamping experience makes the most of Scotland’s unique and storied history. Offering you the chance to stay in an authentic replica of an Iron Age Celtic Roundhouse, situated within the gorgeous Mabie Forest. The site also has a wood-fired sauna, for those looking for a bit of modern relaxation!
Nothing can beat a truly unique glamping experience, and if you want to find your own pristine haven of UK glamping, then the Vintage Tent Company is the place to begin. We offer an impressive range of authentic canvas bell tents, including both 4m bell tents and 5m bell tents.
