Cute and cosy glamping pods right in the heart of things in Aviemore.
Eriskay Craig Na Gower Avenue Aviemore PH22 1RW 01479 810 717
High on the northern fringes of the vast (1,748 sq mi) Cairngorms National Park, Aviemore is a year-round base for outdoors enthusiasts of all persuasions, and the destination of choice for the many of the UK's most dedicated winter sports fans. From kayaking on Loch Morlich to tackling the mighty Munros of Britain's highest, coldest, and snowiest mountain range, this unspoilt landscape is a veritable smorgasbord of epic features waiting to be explored. However, while there's a refreshing lack of exclusivity about Aviemore, accommodation at the resort proper often falls on the pricey side. What a treat then to find Aviemore Glamping – a charming glamping site with a good-value bed-and-breakfast place, the Eriskay, attached.
The four ingeniously-designed timber pods comfortably sleep a couple on the fold-out double bed. There's an immaculately maintained shower/wet room, and, most importantly, these cosy cabins stay nice and toasty on teeth-chatteringly cold Highland evenings. They're kitted out with everything you could need, including bedding, cutlery and utensils, and although there aren't full cooking facilities there's access to a microwave, toaster and hot-water boiler. Or you can nip across the gravel path to join your indoor B&B buddies for a full-on Scottish breakfast (available for an extra charge), courtesy of hostess Pat. By the way, Rufus the resident lurcher is quite a character and always keen to get to know new guests – they even have a self-catering cabin named after him that's also available to rent.
