Taigh Dhonnchaidh, Gearrannan Blackhouse Village, Isle of Lewis. | These traditional thatched Hebridean blackhouses date back several centuries, and were occupied by crofters until the 1970s. The largest cottage has been converted into a hostel for ten people, with cosy bunkbeds that you can book for just £15 a night.
A pod, you say? Don’t mind if we do. Not only does it sound fantastically sci-fi, but a camping pod or holiday cabin is waterproof, cosy, can sleep up to five and is available all around the country, from Skye to St Austell. A step up from the traditional bothy, a camping pod is one of the more affordable glamping experiences and can be had all year round.
