Delight the kids with teepee holidays in Scotland
Put off camping by all that strenuous effort putting up a tent, and by all the camping equipment you need to bring? The solution may be teepee holidays in Scotland, a healthy and enjoyable way to enjoy the great outdoors, with added comfort.
The Loch Tay Highland Lodges Teepees (www.lochtay-vacations.co.uk) provide a range of accommodation in very cute wood cabin-like teepees. A variety of sizes sleep from 3 to 6 people, with prices starting from £15 per adult per night, £7.50 for a child, with a 2-night minimum stay.
The teepees are equipped with bunk-beds (but bring your own sleeping-bags) fridges and TVs. Some of the larger ones even have showers and kitchen areas. They are located in an idyllic setting on the shores of Loch Tay, not far from the pretty village of Killin and the Falls of Dochart.
Ardfern Tipis (www.ardferntipis.co.uk) are situated near Loch Craignish on the west coast of Scotland. They have 2 18-foot lodges accomodating 4 adults in each (although 5 could fit at a push). Prices are £20 per night for adults, £10 for children under 14, and children under 5 go free.
The teepees have a central fireplace, lamps, Mexican rugs, sheepskins, bedmats and backrests. Cooking equipment and plates are provided, and barbecue packs of local produce can be ordered in advance. Toilets and shower facilities are a minute's walk away. It's a ten-minute walk to the village store and pub, making it the perfect location for memorable teepee holidays in Scotland.
