- Peaceful dog-friendly glamping site at the foot of Ben Nevis
- A five-minute drive to mountain biking trails in the Nevis Range
- Access to a salmon fishing river; Fort William 10 minutes' drive
Mountain biking in the Nevis Mountain range and sleeping at the foot of Ben Nevis? Oh, go on then… Great Glen Yurts is a glamping site where you don’t have to compromise on comfort (or sort out bringing and putting up your own camping equipment, for that matter).
At the foot of Ben Nevis, just five minutes’ drive from the mountain biking trails at the Nevis Range Mountain Resort, this is a right spot for outdoor adventures in the Highlands and Islands. Dedicate your days to climbing and walking the north face of Ben Nevis or messing around in the nearby mountain bikers' playground, which has trails for all abilities, including a family-friendly downhill trail.
If you want to switch up the slopes for the water, Fort William is 10 minutes’ drive away. The town has shops, restaurants and a cinema if you’re planning a lazier day or only setting out to gather supplies.There are plenty of local companies who run watersports like sea kayaking, white water rafting, canyoning and paddleboarding around the Highlands and Islands. The gorgeous family farm on which you’ll be based also borders a salmon fishing river with great swimming spots a short walk away.
With facilities like a communal shower and a toilet block with plenty of hot water (bring your own towels), things are nice and cosy at Great Glen Yurts. There’s a communal barrel barbecue (bring your own charcoal) and a firepit in the middle of the field (no firewood is provided, so you’ll get to scavenge for your own in the woods). Dogs are very welcome too, just as long as they’re kept on a lead near livestock.
All the properties are furnished with a comfy double bed with fluffy feather duvets and pillows, sheepskin rugs, lanterns and a woodburning stove (firewood is provided for this one). Handily, they also have their own personal open-air kitchen handcrafted from trees grown on the farm. This includes gas rings, a toaster, kettle, fridge, pots, pans, plates, and utensils. Please note that while linen is provided for the double bed, you will need to bring sleeping bags for additional guests.
