Of all the islands Scotland has to offer, Skye is particularly magical. Not only is it home to all the natural wonders that outdoorsy folk love (beaches, mountains, forests, oh my!), but it is also rife with mystical Gaelic mythology that will enchant even the most sceptical of souls. Because of Scotland’s leniency on wild camping laws, sleeping under the stars is certainly an option, but we will warn you now – those north-westerly winds sure have a bite to them! With this in mind, accommodation with a slightly sturdier roof than mesh or tarp may be in order! We’ve put together a list of the b ..read more

Camping can be a fun, inexpensive way to take some time out of the hustle and bustle of modern life to enjoy nature and the simplicity of going back to basics – and Scotland boasts some seriously gorgeous camping spots. But with traditional camping comes impracticalities, including being at the complete mercy of the weather, bumpy grounds, lengthy midnight pilgrimages to the nearest loo, and the faff of having to both transport and erect your tent. While many of us adore being at one with nature, we also like a home comfort or two. That’s where glamping comes in. For those looking into glampin ..read more
