Inverness is known as the “Capital of the Highlands” and is an ideal spot for exploring Scotland’s beauty. Located on the northeast coast of Scotland, the largest city in the Scottish Highlands has an Old Town with structures that date all the way back to the 14th century. History buffs would have a great time visiting the various ancient battlegrounds and medieval ruins. For nature lovers, a visit to Inverness’s Ben Nevis, the highest peak in the United Kingdom is a must. Of course, one of the most well-known natural attractions in Inverness is the Loch Ness! While you might not spot Nessie so easily, this freshwater lake is still one of the most magnificent sights in the Highlands. Fully immerse yourself in Inverness by glamping (i.e. camping in glamour) in the Scottish Highlands with Trip101’s list of the best glamping spots in Inverness, the UK.

1. Rustic lodge with modern comforts (from USD 129)

This is a modern campsite with lodges or pods, as they are referred to by the friendly owner, Maggie. Located near popular attractions in Inverness such as Kilravock Castle (which dates back to the 15th century as the seat of the Clan Rose), Fort George (one of the UK’s most highly reinforced forts built to resist Jacobite unrest), and Cawdor Castle (home of the Thanes of Cawdor for over 600 years), this property is great for those who want to be within easy access of tourist sites while having some peace and quiet as well. Each of the pods can accommodate up to four adults and has en-suite facilities as well as communal cooking facilities. Most importantly, each pod comes with free WiFi!

This property is good for small families and friends who want to spend quality time together, away from most modern distractions.

Ghoirtein Yurt is a new property and is located in the middle of the woodlands, where you will be surrounded by the sights and sounds of Inverness’s thriving wildlife population. In season, visitors can spot the brilliant kingfishers, red squirrels, the stoat-like European pine martens, fiery-furred foxes, quick brown stoats, and slender weasels.
