Glamping in Scotland
Remote, rugged Scotland is understandably a bit of a glamping Mecca. If holidays, for you, are all about getting away and escaping the frenetic modern world, then packing the car and whisking yourself away to the remote western isles of the awe-inspiring highlands has an obvious appeal. Glamping in Scotland isn't all about escaping the urban world, however. Here at Cool Camping our aim is to pick the very best glamping experiences, whether that be a remote, hilltop retreat or a special city escape. We've got glamping in a castle on the outskirts of Edinburgh and we've got island yurt retreats that are a ferry journey (or two) away. The one thing, however, that all our Scottish glamping recommendations have in common is that they are the true crème-de-la-cème of the glamping world and we're confident that, whatever your after, you'll love our hand-picked selection.

A touch of Scottish History
The Romans may have famously never succeeded in conquering Scotland after over a century of trying (Northumberland's forts and Hadrian's wall leave a lasting sign to this day), but it's the relationship with England that has left the greatest mark. Despite recent votes and referenda, the two countries are still be inexorably liked by 1707’s Act of Union, but it wasn't that many centuries ago that the border saw constant turmoil, with great Scottish heroes such as William Wallace and Robert the Bruce still very much celebrated today. The 19th century brought wealth, while the 20th saw a move from traditional industries to oil and off-shore rigging, while rural work in agriculture and fishing still remains a core of the country's offering to this day. While independence debates continue, one thing is for sure, Scotland's unspoiled countryside and wild, rigged coastline is something that everyone, from every nation can appreciate. For glamping it is a natural haven and there are few places that we would rather be.
Glamping Accommodation in Scotland
Seasonal Scotland is well known for its variable weather, so it's no surprise that a lot of glamping accommodation in the country involves solid structures, hard-roofs and a warm, air-tight set-up. There are, however, plenty of shorter-term glamping sites that are open during the summer only. Such locations offer the likes of bell tents and other, airier canvas structures like tipis and family-sized safari tents. Sturdier but similarly seasonal, yurts are often available well into October, though generally yurt sites are also closed during the coolest months. Whatever the weather, though, shepherd's huts offer a cosy year-round space, often with wood-burning stoves and handy kitchen facilities, while the likes of wooden-topped gypsy roulottes and insulated pods are also popular. Not all glamping sites follow specific patterns, though, and, across Scotland, you'll also find a vast array of truly imaginative glamping offerings. There are multi-storey treehouses, converted army vehicles and even whole islands that you can hire all to yourselves. And here at Cool Camping we believe we have uncovered the very best.
