About this listing
Great Glen Yurts is an eco yurt camp located in the heart of the Scottish Highlands at the foot of Ben Nevis. The yurts and Shepherds Hut are well spaced out along a riverside spot with spectacular views of the whole of the North face of Ben Nevis.
Great Glen Yurts is peaceful yurt camp set on our organic farm in the West Highlands, Scotland. At the foot of the North Face of Ben Nevis and a short ride from the legendary World Cup Mountain Bike tracks, the location near Fort William is a perfect base camp for adventures in the Scottish Highlands.
The Great Glen farm has plenty of woodland and riverside walks providing a perfect hunting ground for wild foraging and spotting wildlife. The farm is bordered by a 3 mile stretch of the river Lochy, a famous salmon fishing river with many secluded swimming spots.
Great Glen farms their very own Highland cows and Hebridean sheep, whilst also breeding adorable Highland Ponies, plus a herd of 14 beautiful riding horses of many different breeds.
The surrounding area includes wonderful Highland scenery of the Great Glen, Ben Nevis and Glen Nevis, Glenfinnan, Loch Linnhe and Glen Spean. The yurt camp makes a great base for exploring the local wilderness where you can enjoy great hillwalking, mountain biking, touring, kayaking and other activities.
There are piping hot showers, flushing toilets and a beautiful communal kitchen area with gas rings, BBQ, toaster and fridge.
Your Yurt or Shepherds Hut will be available for check in from 3pm onwards. There is no formal check in process, the yurt will be open and ready for you so just go ahead and make yourself at home and someone will pop down to say hello early evening. Please don't worry about staying in to see someone we will catch up with you to say hello in the morning.

I am inspired by dramatic landscapes and being active and in touch with my environment whether its swimming in freezing rivers, hiking in the mountains or growing vegetables in the soil. I am motivated by lifestyle not money which is why I choose to live in a beautiful part of the world. I want my children to experience wilderness and running free among nature.
