Great Glen Yurts is an eco yurt camp in a woodland setting by a river at the foot of Nevis Range. Come and stay in one of our authentic Mongolian yurts set on our beautiful organic farm. Our stunning location is on the door step of the Nevis Range downhill mountain bike track and the North Face of Ben Nevis, making it the perfect base camp for a Scottish adventure.

Staying in a Yurt is a great way to experience all the joys of camping and getting back to nature without compromising on comfort. Experience "living in the round" and living in the wilds in our private ecocamp. The camp is run on ecological principles with composting toilets, wood burning stoves and low impact "buildings". The mission of the business is to promote low impact tourism, natural living and generate creative ideas around sustainable lifestyle, personal transformation and community living. As well as offering unique accommodation, we host courses, creative workshops, retreats and outdoor sports immersion holidays.Also come and stay in our brand new hand made Shepherds Hut. The hut is located by the river near the yurts with amazing views of Ben Nevis. It is fully insulated and has a wood burning stove, table and chairs, lanterns, double bed and balcony. The hut sleeps 2 people and is perfect for a couples retreat.The hut has its own picnic table and BBQ right outside. The first basket of wood is provided after which you can buy bags of briquettes at the yurt camp.Please bring your own charcoal for the BBQ.
