Unique Glamping Spots In Scotland
Sleeping two in one cosy double bed, it doesn’t get any cuter than this modern take on a shepherds hut. The Kailyard at Guardswell Farm in Perthshire may be small but it makes space for a kitchen with gas stove and sink so you can cook up something delicious before sitting around the fire pit and indulging in some star gazing. You’ll be likely to spot some of the locals too as your very own flock of Hebridean sheep and two donkeys roam close by. There’s no electricity or wifi at The Kailyard, so take this as the perfect opportunity to switch off and recharge.
The price: from £100 per night.
