- Playground, games room and kitchen/diner
For a glamping getaway with a difference, grab one of the tiptop tipis at Hilly Cow Wigwams, a site on a lovely Lothian farm just outside Livingston.
This is very much a rural site, but the centre of Edinburgh is around a half-hour drive away (or, even better, a 30-minute train ride from the local station, Kirknewton). As it’s a working farm, you’re likely to come across hens, pigs, sheep, horses or cows during your stay – and possibly even little lambs in the right season.
Whenever your hol is planned, lots of walking and bike routes can be picked up locally (including those heading up into the Pentland Hills Regional Park, less than a mile away), and there’s plenty of space to run about on the grounds if you’d prefer to burn energy closer to base. A playground is on site for the kids, plus there’s a games room in the amenity block, which also houses a kitchen/diner and some rather smart bathrooms.
And how about the accommodation? Well, stays here are in cosy insulated wooden wigwams, each kitted out with beds, a heater, kettle, fridge and mirror. Outside is a private deck with a picnic bench and campfire area – and either is a fine place to relax with a drink while taking in some fab views over the Forth Valley.
To bulk up on the basics, the shops and other amenities in Livingston’s centre are around a 15-minute drive away.

Slightly more conventional things to do include rifling the racks for bargains at the Livingston Designer Outlet (15 minutes) and visiting the animals at the Five Sisters Zoo (20 minutes).
Creatures can also be viewed at Almond Valley, a watermill with a farm park, mini trains and play areas (20 minutes), or at the famed Edinburgh Zoo (half an hour).
Stately homes more your thing? Lope around Linlithgow Palace (half an hour) to meander around the main residences of Scotland’s monarchs in the 15th and 16th centuries; Edinburgh, around the same distance, has enough intriguing architecture to fill days and days of explores, from the modern Holyrood parliament building to the ancient hilltop castle.
