Glamping at Dornie Wigwams® is perfect for you if you wish to surround yourself with the great natural and historical sights of Scotland.
Two lovely wooden Wigwam® cabins hug the outline of a small hill, along a track road a stone’s throw from the village of Dornie. The glamping pods sleep up to four people and have all the little luxuries you need for a perfect glamping break near Kyle of Lochalsh.
The Wigwam® cabins have en-suite bathrooms and washing facilities, and a fully-fitted kitchenette with a dining table, electric hob and microwave. There is electric heating and double glazing, and the whole cabin is insulated, making it extremely cosy. The beds come with luxury mattresses, and the double glazed windows and patio doors mean you can have a very peaceful night’s sleep indeed.
This area is proud to be home to the spectacular Eilean Donan Castle. Sitting on the water where three lochs meet, this castle is truly like something from a fairytale. Loch Long, Loch Duich and Lochalsh cross here, so you’d expect, there’s a wide range of water-based activities to enjoy nearby, including canoeing, fishing and even glass-bottomed boat safaris.
As you’d expect from a glamping break in Scotland, the landscape here is dominated by lochs and majestic mountains, so if you love Munro bagging, there’s plenty to keep you busy here. Visit the tracks of the Five Sisters of Kintail mountain range to get you started as you take on five Munros in one day!
Many of the activities in this area centre around Kyle of Lochalsh, just nine miles from Dornie Wigwams® along the A87. Here, you can grab something delicious to eat, spend some time at the leisure centre and pick up your glamping essentials to make your break at Dornie Wigwams® perfect.
From Kyle, you can take many different types of guided tours and trips around the area. Boat tours are very popular here as is hopping on a coach and taking a day trip to the Isle of Skye. Alternatively, you can drive across and explore by yourself.
If you’re spending time in Kyle itself, check out one of the town’s best-kept secrets: Dun Brewing, a wonderful organic brewing company. The brewery has its own lounge bar, the Dun Inn, where you can sample their ales with a few snacks before you head back out to explore the area further, although if you enjoy micro-brewed beers, this could be harder than you thought!
There’s no doubt about it - this wonderful nook of Scotland has enough going on to keep you busy all through the day, though there’s something wonderful about saying farewell to your new experiences and heading back to your own peaceful and secluded Wigwam® cabin.
Evening time is when you relax around your roaring campfire, a glass of something soothing in your hand, toasting marshmallows or rejoicing in the smell of your favourite sausages sizzling away on your BBQ as you watch stars twinkle in the sky. There’s truly no better way to unwind from a fun-filled day before you enjoy a night of rest and relaxation surrounded by beautiful scenery and the sounds of nature.
