Where do you get to choose from extremely unique accommodation, pick a stunning backdrop and experience the great outdoors – all without sacrificing your home comforts? Glamping – and it’s the ideal way to connect with nature without having to rough it. With glamping, you can enjoy amazing views and secluded landscapes while you can; relax in a cozy comfortable bed, luxuriate in a hot bubble bath, enjoy an on-site spa or even escape to your private beach.
This is perhaps why glamping has caused a revolution in camping and outdoor escapes. With a huge variety of luxury glamping sites all over the UK, and an enormous range of facilities and activities to choose from, glamping appeals to virtually all types and ages. In Scotland particularly, the glamping bug really caught-on. There’s no doubt the spectacular Scottish scenery and the huge selection of well-appointed themed sites played a major part in this booming recreation.
Being closer to nature
Glamping lets you experience nature in an up-close, unforgettable way and provides the perfect opportunity to recharge your batteries when life becomes a little hectic. Waking up and stepping out of your tent, yurt, gypsy caravan, or tree house, directly into the great outdoors is simply one of life’s most enjoyable experiences.
The energy and materials involved in the construction of a typical small hotel are considerable, however in most cases glamping accommodation takes advantage of the surrounding natural materials and are likely to be of a low energy/low impact build. Composting toilets, solar power, and small wind turbines are common in many glamping sites. And some timber structures that might have been discarded or forgotten are sometimes recycled into beautiful and very unique glamping accommodation.
A total adventure
Hiking, mountain biking, white water rafting, canoeing, archery, bird watching and fishing are just a few of the activities you can participate in while enjoying your glamping experience. There’s even a more urban escape located in beautiful natural surroundings near to Glasgow, Stirling and Edinburgh – Eden Leisure Village. It offers all the fun of luxurious glamping, combined with superb leisure facilities and a range of outdoor activities including Scotland’s premier outdoor karting track – the Madtrax Mayhem circuit. The glamping accommodation at Eden Village is also very well appointed and there’s a wide choice of top-quality options, including hobbit huts, wooden glamping pods and Safari bell tents available.
