Grab yourself a boy’s - or girl’s - own adventure at East Grange Wigwams in Moray, where you can rollick around the Scottish countryside on quad bikes and dirt karts, or play cowboys and Indians with some archery and shooting practice, before rustling up a ribsticking feast on the campfire and bedding down for the night in your very own wigwam. Huzzah!
There’s a swashbuckling selection of activities on offer: you could come home boasting that you’ve braved Scotland’s longest zip wire, conquered the nearby whitewater rapids, or even walked on water (no-one needs know that it was in an inflatable ball...). There’s also trout fishing, laser tag and more.
If your companions have had enough of your campfire croonings, round them up for a night of fun at the site’s Loft Bar and Bistro - it’s one of the best venues for live acts in the region, graced by the likes of Paolo Nutini, Idlewild and the Saw Doctors, as well as several top names in stand-up comedy. The downstairs bistro does scrummy traditional Scottish farmhouse grub, washed down with award-winning wines and local ale - and we’re told that the Sunday lunch is to die for.
Camping is in the middle of a newly created five-acre plantation of tradition Scottish woodland, and camping pitches include access to a communal bothy (a fully-equipped cooking and dining area). Please note it's a 300m walk to the facilities from the camping area.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

East Grange is half a mile off the A96 - travel four miles from Forres toward Elgin. Look out for the brown tourist information sign post for 'The Loft Bistro & Venue' on the left-hand side of the road.
If you're travelling from the Aberdeen direction, it's nine miles from Elgin on the A96 and the sign will be on your right-hand side.
There are buses (10 or 305) from Forres or Elgin every half hour or so that will do a 'country stop' at the end of the road. Talk to the driver before you depart from either location or they may miss it!
Those who want to continue in the boys' own vein can stage their own mock battles at Culloden; the battlefield and a fascinating visitor centre are half an hour’s drive from East Grange Wigwams. History buffs will also find plenty of castles and moody standing stones to clamber around.
Moray’s mild climate (for Scotland, anyway) and low average rainfall mean there’s a good chance of making the most of the fabulous golf courses, sailing, sandy beaches, forest trails and awesome mountains - you can even take to the slopes during the ski season.
Amber nectar aficionados will also be interested in making the rounds of the renowned whisky distilleries nearby: everyone’s heard of Glenmorangie, Glenlivet and Glenfiddich, all easily doable from East Grange Wigwams, but with half of Scotland’s malt whisky distilleries located in the Speyside area of Moray, there’s no shortage of options, including two beauties less than four miles away in the town of Forres.
