Wake up in the woods
The forest is a magical place at any time of day. Why go home when you can stay? Get to know it as the wildlife that live here do: from dawn to dusk. There are lots of different ways to sleep over in Scotland's national forests – from comfortable cabins to camping – so give it a go…
Cabins in the forest
Hire a wooden cabin by lovely Loch Awe or in the stunning landscape of the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park. During the day you can enjoy plenty of activities for the whole family, miles of forest trails to explore and wonderful woodland wildlife. Book through Forest Holidays.
Camping in the forest
Stay at a well-equipped forest camping site for a camping experience with all mod-cons. You bring your tent, campervan or caravan – and we’ll supply the woodland ambience. Book through Camping in the Forest.
Composting toilets, mobile fire pits and no showers – Sallochy woodland campsite on Loch Lomond is a total eco-experience. Download the Sallochy leaflet to find out more and book online. Or try the lovely Kilvrecht campsite on Loch Rannoch.
Camping wild in the forest can be fun if you're hardy. Please choose a campsite that’s well away from buildings, roads and our recreation facilities and do your best to leave no trace of your stay. This type of camping is lightweight and done in small numbers, for only two or three nights in a place. Overnight parking of cars and campervans is not permitted.
The Scottish Outdoor Access Code has more information and guidance about how to wild camp responsibly.
Note that camping is restricted on the east side of Loch Lomond from the 1st of March to the end of October. There's more information about this on the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park Authority website.
