Scotland Glamping

The lush green countryside and rugged beaches make Scotland a perfect backdrop for a glamping adventure.

Even if you’re not particularly outdoorsy, I think you’ll absolutely love spending the night glamping on your Scotland trip.

We love that glamping establishments combine an appreciation for nature along with creature comforts. I mean, is there a better combination than that?

Just how expensive is glamping in Scotland? 

Hidden Horizon Luxury Scotland Glamping Pods

We were surprised to find just how affordable some of the glamping pods in Scotland are! You can find budget glamping options for as little as $70 USD per night.

On the other end of the spectrum, if you really want to pamper yourself and book a glamping pod with a hot tub, you might be splurging a bit more.

Even though we were traveling around Scotland in a campervan, we decided to splurge by booking one night in a glamping pod, and oh my goodness, we were so glad we did! 

Personally, we chose to book a spot that had a private hot tub, and it was the perfect ebay to spend one of our last nights in Scotland.

Why go glamping in Scotland?

Hidden Horizon Luxury Scotland Glamping Pods

We could go on and on about what a cool experience glamping is, but we’ve narrowed it down to 4 reasons so we don’t ramble on too long!

Budget-friendly

Even if you’re traveling on a budget, you should be able to find a glamping pod at a price point that doesn’t break the bank! 

Many campgrounds around Scotland have glamping options that are relatively basic, but come with more creature comforts than traditional camping. If you’re on a tight budget, we’d recommend looking at campground options first.

Super unique and memorable stays

There are some incredibly unique and beautiful places to stay around Scotland. 

Imagine spending the night in a treehouse or a geodome, or a pod that opens up to a perfect view of the surrounding landscape. No regular hotel can compare. Glamping will truly be a stay to remember!

Splurge with a private hot tub

Soak in your own private hot tub beneath the stars… ‘Nuff said! 

Don’t forget to bring a bottle of wine. Or Scotch. Or gin. Or all of the above!

Pet-friendly stays

There are lots of pet-friendly glamping options around Scotland. Often, there will be a specific pod that is reserved for those traveling with furry friends.


Best Scotland Glamping Stays

Okay, are you convinced that you need to book a night (or five!) in a glamping pod while exploring Scotland? We don’t think you’ll regret it!

Without further ado, here are some of the best places to go glamping in Scotland (including the one we personally stayed at). 

1. Hidden Horizon Luxury Glamping Pods

  • Location: Just outside Glasgow
  • Price: starting at $175 per night
  • Exact Location

Just a 20-minute drive from downtown Glasgow, Hidden Horizons Glamping feels a world away from the bustling city. 

After researching all sorts of glamping options around Scotland, we landed on this one as it lined up really well with our itinerary, and we just couldn’t resist those private hot tubs with a sweeping view over Glasgow as well as a small pasture with grazing ponies. 

A view of the city AND horses at the same time?! Yes, please!

Each of the pods at Hidden Horizon has a slightly different theme, but they each have great attention to detail. 

There are special touches throughout the pod, like cookies to enjoy with morning coffee, and robes and slippers to take you to the next level of relaxation.

Even though you’re technically glamping, there are all the comforts you could need, like a luxuriously comfy bed, a shower with hot water, and a small but thoughtfully-equipped kitchenette. 

There’s even a common area with a grill and an outdoor fire pit for a cozy way to spend the evening and mingle with other guests.

On top of it all, the couple who owns Hidden Horizons is super sweet and are very welcoming hosts.

But the star of it all? 

You guessed it – that private hot tub! 

We enjoyed some bubbly in the bubbles, making this glamping pod worth every penny.

Overall, we highly recommend this spot! (Note: This stay was not sponsored, we just truly loved it.) 

Our advice: Arrive as close to check-in time as possible because you’ll truly want to soak up as much time here as you can.

It’ll be hard to tear yourself away, but when (if!) you do, there’s a stream, three ponds, wooded hiking trails, and a sculpture trail to explore.

The hobbit houses each sleep six and have wood-burning stoves, running cold water, and kitchenettes. The tents are more rustic and best for couples or small families, with one double bed and two camp beds each. 

There’s a communal kitchen and dining area in a fun converted stable, and as an eco glamping site, Greenhillock has solar showers and easy-to-use composting toilets. 

Best of all, especially for glampers with kiddos, are the onsite activities. There’s Mud Kitchen, for making mud pies and pizzas (complete with pots, pans, and even an oven!), the Den Zone for building forts, and the Hobbit-esque Art Shack.

Fulshaw Mill Holidays is also exceptionally dog- and family-friendly. There’s a communal fire pit area with a massive outdoor TV, hammocks, BBQ grills, and sports equipment for playing in the open spaces. Be sure to stop into the tiny local pub, the Mill House.

Stay right on the shores of sparkling Loch Katrine when you book one of these eco-friendly glamping pods. Each pod sleeps 2-4 people and varies in amenities. 

Loch Lodges have en suite bathrooms and kitchenettes, while Ben Eco Lodges are more like rustic camping cabins with no bathroom facilities or linens. The Glen Lodges are a hybrid of the two, with private toilets and sinks but communal showers. All pods include wi-fi, TV, and decks with outdoor seating. 

One of the biggest benefits of staying at this Scotland glampsite (aside from the views, of course!) is that guests get discounted cruises around Loch Katrine, as well as discounted bicycle rentals. The loch has a smooth path going around it, perfect for bike rides!

  • Location: Turriff, on the Banffshire coast
  • Price: starting at $75 per night
  • Exact Location

This Scotland glamping site is situated on a second-generation family farm and offers a variety of fun accommodation types. 

There are yurts, wigwams (wooden A-frame chalets), a converted boat wheelhouse that still has the original wheel intact, a bothy, and Otter Hut, which is difficult to explain, but basically was built partially into the Earth. 

Each glamping site has a unique personality of its own, but you’ll probably want to spend most of your time outside. The farm has dozens of small lochs perfect for exploring and fishing, as well as designated open play spaces and strategically placed hammocks. Just 10 minutes away, the remote beaches and resident seals and dolphins of the Banffshire coast beckon. 

9. Eriskay B&B and Aviemore Glamping

Aviemore is a wonderful destination in its own right, a perfectly-situated basecamp for exploring the Highlands and in particular, Loch Ness, Inverness, and the Isle of Skye. From Eriskay, you can walk to several pubs and restaurants, as well as public transportation.

  • Location: Perthshire, in the very center of Scotland
  • Price: starting at $118 per night
  • Exact Location

These adorable, tiny shepherds huts in an especially scenic part of rural Scotland embody the term “tiny but mighty.” Each has a kitchenette, dining area, en suite bathroom, and patio with outside seating. There’s also a shared “summer house” with dining and comfy seating. 

While this region is so tranquil and a bit remote, there’s plenty to do in Perthshire. Some of the country’s oldest golf courses are nearby (did you know that golf was actually invented in Scotland?!). 

There’s also the Scone Palace, with roots that trace back over 1,000 years, serving as the site where many monarchs were crowned and the long-time home of the Stone of Destiny.

11. Hillhead Farm Luxury Glamping Pods

These luxury round container-shaped pods are situated on a working family farm in rural southwest Scotland. Expansive views over the valley, roaring campfires at night, and plenty of open space invite you to simply unplug and enjoy. 

The three pods are identical, with enough space for up to four people—ideally a couple and their children, as there’s one large bed and two tucked-away, very compact bunk beds. 

Each has its own bathroom, kitchenette, electricity with plenty of outlets for charging devices, and even a heated towel rack. To make your Scotland glamping experience extra special, you can also add packages for breakfast, BBQ, the fire pit, or Prosecco. 

12. The Bus Stop

  • Location: Gifford, just east of Edinburgh
  • Price: Eco buses starting at $110 per night (open from March through October); luxury buses starting at $165 per night; all with a 2-night minimum
  • Exact Location

The Bus Stop is by far one of the most memorable, quirkiest glamping stays in Scotland! Nine unique buses are arranged around a working farm in the East Lothian countryside, 25 miles from Edinburgh. 

Each bus has its own personality, but all of them have a private wood-fired hot tub, outdoor fire pit, and wood-fired stove inside for heat. 

Eco buses don’t have electricity but do have lanterns and other amenities to make your Scotland glamping stay as comfy as possible. Luxury buses have full electric, bathrooms, and kitchens. 

One of the coolest things about The Bus Stop is that the entire farm is sustainably run. Everything runs on solar power, all wood is sourced locally, and all furniture, appliances, and the buses themselves are upcycled and repurposed. 

13. Fossoway Cabins

If you’re looking for a romantic place to go glamping in Scotland, these adults-only, pod-style cabins are perfect! They’re nestled into the central Scotland countryside in a tranquil area with beautiful scenery, clear skies for stargazing, and best of all, private wood-fired hot tubs!

The hot tubs are, of course, the star attraction, but they’re far from the only one. All guests are welcomed with a basket of fresh local produce and goodies! 

This area is also full of castles, golf courses, whisky distilleries, and more, and if you want to explore further, Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Stirling are all within easy driving distance.

  • Location: Mallaig
  • Price: starting at $113 per night; 2-night minimum stay
  • Exact Location

Calling this a Scotland glamping pod is a bit of a misnomer; it looks much more like a hobbit hut. Whatever you prefer to call it, however, this is one unforgettable stay! 

It’s located within a 10-minute walk of the famous Camusdarrach Beach, which served as the filming site for the popular movie Local Hero, and close to the adorable fishing village of Mallaig. 

Inside the pod, the bed is in a loft and there’s a kitchenette, bathroom, seating area, and outside seating with a grill (BYO charcoal!). Guests can order breakfast or grazing boxes, which we highly recommend — the owners run a separate popular B&B!

15. The Dome at Mid Auchengowan

A short distance from the Glasgow airport (the center of Glasgow is about 25 minutes away, while Loch Lomond is 45 minutes), this luxury geodesic dome offers a unique Scotland glamping experience. 

It’s situated on a family farm that features sitewide wi-fi and free parking, and has fantastic views over the countryside—right from bed!—with beautiful watercolor sunsets. 

The dome itself has two king size beds (it’s much larger inside than you might imagine!) and comfortably sleeps four adults. There’s a wood-burning stove, small kitchen, lounge area, outside seating with a BBQ and fire pit, and a cute little shower hut attached to the dome.

“Magical micro cabins” is a lofty claim, but RiverBeds delivers with its wooden pods perched above the River Coe and decks with private hot tubs. Inside, somehow everything you need is perfectly laid out in the tiny space, with a bathroom, kitchenette, and separate bedroom. 

RiverBeds is one of the pricier options, but no luxury was spared in creating this glamping experience. You’ll even have fresh, homemade breakfast delivered to your cabin every morning! Unlike many Scotland glamping places, this one is open year-round. 

17. SeaBeds Luxury Lookouts With Hot Tubs

We may have saved the best Scotland glamping location for last. As the “bigger sister” property to RiverBeds Luxury Wee Lodges, you can count on an ultra luxurious experience here. SeaBeds is definitely a splurge, but a worthy one for special occasions.

In addition to the views across Loch Linnhe and your private infinity edge hot tub, SeaBeds lodges have waterfall showers, theater-style drop-down screens for watching movies in bed, and complimentary, hand-delivered breakfast baskets.
