Glamping in Scotland

Are we mad?

Yes, probably. The husband (he gets called this when I am cross) secretly booked a night of glamping in the middle of nowhere during the stormiest patch of weather of our 2 week holiday. I was furious to put it mildly but it ended up being a bit special. And I got to stay in a really nice hotel afterwards to make up for it :).

Ladies and gentlemen I give you the encampment:

We had the place to ourselves – obviously – who else would bother camping in this weather. We had a cool little camp with a few tents and a caravan in which to escape the cold and the rain. I was very temped to sleep in the caravan.

In fact we weren’t alone – we had some lovely hens to keep us company.

Don’t be fooled by how cute the inside of the tent looked – it was cold and damp!

But don’t worry, after a hefty battle with the stove – I brought it to life with a great big roaring fire.

In no time we were absolutely baked!!

And had to open the door to cool down – except then the hens wanted to get in so I had to sit on guard!IMG_6792

The weather turned just as we set out for our walk…

Full wet weather gear is an absolute must for holidays in northern Europe!
