Loch Tay Vacations
An award-winning lakeside retreat in the central highlands of Scotland with a range of unique accommodation and onsite activities.
Immerse yourself in the glorious Scottish Highlands with an unforgettable glamping experience at Loch Tay Vacations, voted "Best Scottish Glamping Site" at the Scottish Outdoor Leisure Awards 2016. From ultramodern Glamping Domes to a traditional Stable Bothy, there's no better way to get back to nature (without missing the luxuries of home!).
Loch Tay Vacations couldn't be more perfectly located for taking in the beautiful central highlands of Scotland. Just minutes from picturesque Killin in the heart of Perthshire, its surrounded by mountains, rivers, and lochs - including the stunning Loch Tay. And as well as a superb range of accommodation, you'll also find a huge range of activities right on your doorstep - so it's ideal for getting your outdoor fix!
Glamping Domes (sleep 4)
First up are the extraordinary Glamping Domes, for contemporary camping overlooking Loch Tay. Sleeping up to four people apiece between one double bed and two camper mattresses, they're just perfect for a couple or small family. Inside your space-age dome, you'll find a comfy and cosy interior lit by LED lighting, and more than enough space to house you and all your belongings.
A wood-burning stove keeps you toasty as you chill out on the super-cool bean bag armchairs, and laminate flooring, rugs, and curtains make your experience a far cry from traditional camping! Outside, a private picnic area and BBQ make for the most spectacular alfresco dining - overlooked by the magnificent Ben Lawers mountain.
Wigwams (sleep 4)
For a more traditional glamping experience, book a stay in a wigwam - a cute and cosy timber home sleeping up to four. Set in a secluded woodland glade, but still offering spectacular views of the marvellous loch and mountain from your private BBQ area, each wigwam is fitted with a range of necessities for your comfort. A small fridge, kettle, toaster, microwave, television and, of course, the electricity to power it all, make this a perfect option for those who want to experience nature without forgoing creature comforts!
Premium Wigwams (sleep 4)
For a special Highland break for four, Loch Tay Vacations' premium wigwams are the perfect choice. Offering the same timber-clad charm as a regular wigwam, but with extra touches of indulgence and a little more space, a premium wigwam is ideal for older families, a group of adults, or a couple looking for a little more luxury!
As well as a hillside location overlooking Loch Tay, each premium wigwam comes with a real double bed and pull-out sofa bed, a compact kitchen with a small hob, a dining space, and even an integrated shower room and WC. Soak up the views around your private fire pit, and, for all-out luxury, why not opt for the wigwam with its own wood-fired hot tub?
The Stable Bothy (sleeps 8)
The newly converted Stable Bothy is ideal for larger groups who want a traditional bunk-house experience with modern comforts. Sleeping up to eight adults (in bunk beds!), the Stable Bothy is the perfect base for outdoor activities in the Highlands. The open-plan home comes complete with a fully equipped kitchen and a large sitting and dining area. Enjoy touches of luxury throughout, from the wooden floors and log-burning stove, to the wall-mounted flat-screen TV and pool table! Glen Lyon and the Ben Lawers mountain range are right on your doorstep, and after a day spent in the hills, there's even the option to come home to a soak in the wood-fired hot tub...
All guests to Loch Tay Vacations' glamping accommodation can also look forward to full use of the excellent amenities block. Here you'll find a campers' kitchen, a comfy relaxing area with a log-burner, and a useful launderette. There are also showers and toilets (including a disabled WC and shower room), a drying room, and private family bathrooms you can hire if you'd rather enjoy your own space. And if you still haven't had enough of those amazing views, enjoy them around the covered fire pit as your dinner cooks away on the shared BBQs nearby.
Highland Lodges, Woodland Cabins, and Cottages
As well as a fantastic range of glamping options, Loch Tay Vacations also offers a further range of gorgeous accommodation choices. The dreamy Highland Lodges offer, two-, three-, or four-bed options, sleeping five to eight people. These Alpine-esque chalets offer south-facing views, private BBQs and porches, and a choice of 3- or 4-star accommodation.
Then there's the quirky Woodland Cabins - spacious, octagonal homes-from-home for five to six guests. Each comes with one bedroom (either with a double zip-and-link bed, or two sets of bunk beds), as well as offering sleeping space in the cosy and modern living area.
And finally, there's Loch Tay House - a five-bedroom home sleeping up to 10 - and Ivy Tree Cottage, which sleeps four between two bedrooms.
Wherever you stay, you don't have far to go to enjoy some amazing activities in this stunning area. Onsite, there's a huge range to choose from, including archery, Canadian canoe hire, kayaking, sailing, fishing, and disc golf. And beyond Loch Tay Vacations, there's a whole host of ways to explore the local area! Get the adrenaline pumping with a downhill cycle trip, quad biking, or white water rafting, or try your hand at deerstalking or shooting (both clay pigeon and live game options available!).
Whether it's the superb accommodation or fantastic activities that lure you to Loch Tay Vacations, you won't be disappointed by either. So pack up your walking boots, brush up on your campfire songs, and get ready for a holiday to remember.
