Camping has become one of the coolest ways to see the country, so we checked out a few of the perfect pitches on offer to help you get close to nature.

Lazy Duck lazyduck.co.ukLazy Duck is a laid back, green-practice, four-pitch ground for small tents on the edge of Speyside whisky country.

Campers can relax here with hammocks in the heather, a Tarzan swing for second childhoods, a sauna soothed by essential oils and a ‘bush shower’.

Mill Pond newmainsfarm.co.ukIf you really want to get away from it all, you can at Mill Pond provided you can squeeze up the tiny road to get there!

Presiding over the gentle hills that mark the border between Scotland and England, this relaxed retreat sits by a huge pond, with a limit of five tents.

Cooking up a couple of the farm’s eggs for breakfast is the ideal start to a day exploring the natural charms of the Borders.

Red Squirrel redsquirrelcampsite.co.ukIf you like the idea of informal camping where you simply choose a pitch for your tent in among the trees or along the side of a stream then you’ll like Red Squirrel.

Set in the heart of historic Glencoe, this campsite is one of the few sites that allows open fires. It’s also staggering distance back along the road from the legendary Clachaig Inn.

Faichemard Farm faichemard-caravancamping.co.ukIn 2006 the Grants bravely transformed their campsite into Scotland’s first adult-only facility. It’s not only little ones that are banned, cycling and ball games are also prohibited.

If this all sounds a little unfriendly, nothing could be further from the truth with these measures simply increasing the tranquillity of an attractive site.

Aviemore Glamping aviemoreglamping.comIt’s camping but in pure luxury. The site boasts four eco-pods which sleep two people. Each has its own comfy double bed, en-suite wet room with toilet and shower, tea and coffee making facilities and a small fridge to keep those beers chilled!
