Set amid the backdrop of the stunning Great Glen landscape in Scotland, this holiday destination can be summed up in two words – “glamping” and “Nessie.” As you might guess, Loch Ness Glamping is a luxury camping spot for those hoping to catch of glimpse of the elusive creature said to frequent the deep waters of the loch. If the monster spotting doesn’t go to plan (and let's face it, that's highly likely) you can return to "roughing-it" in your private eco-retreat complete with under-floor heating.

Located near Drumnadrochit on Loch Ness, the accommodation facility is home to several independent wooden retreats called "Armadillas." Each cabin features comfy sofas that convert into bedding for sleeping, a private bathroom, kitchenette, flat screen TV and ample storage space.

The cabins open out onto private outdoor patios, allowing guests to sit under the stars at night and enjoy the silence that comes with a remote camping experience. In cooler seasons, the area is known for its chilly weather patterns and thus under-floor heating has been installed into the huts, providing a true "glamp" out.

Loch Ness Glamping offers access to a range of outdoor activities, including extensive walking tracks, biking, exploring ancient castles, white water rafting, caving, tree climbing, diving, skiing, snowboarding and, of course, monster spotting.

A night in an Armadillas cabin will set you back £55.00 (US$88.75) for two people.

As I get older, glamping is more appealing.

We stayed here last year when the 'hobbit homes' were much more basic. Better security than a tent, windproof, waterproof, and far more fun as there's no messing about trying to pitch a tent. Looks to have been well refurbished, though Drum is miles from civilisation...but that's ok as you are right on the edge Loch ness. Glamping is the way to go. Just watch out for the midges.

I call this "Condo Camping", nothing at all to do with real camping. You might as well be in a Hotel if what you want is comfort. This is a glorified hunting camp. If that's what you want and no more than you're good. Hopefully it comes with a great view? That's what this would be good for!

Certainly one of the most attractive of the new breed of eco-cottages I've seen. Very reminiscent of the hull of a wooden boat.
