This location, right along the Road to Isles, is perfect if you’re interested in heading out towards Skye and the coast or if staying closer to Fort William.

The Highland and Transylvania Pods are located north of Fort William in the small village of Roy Bridge, a lovely place to spend a few nights enjoying the Highlands. The pods are well-suited to couples as they feature double beds (although they are a bit narrow!) and a washroom with shower. Given the design of the pods, taller guests may have to duck down a bit in the washroom 😉

However, guests love the stylish and cosy design, off the beaten path location, and easy access to a variety of outdoor activities. You can even stay here in the winter months as the pods are insulated and heated, a perfect option if you’re planning on visiting one of the nearby ski centres.

Breakfast can also be provided, although you’re within walking distance of a few cafes and restaurants as well. Highly recommended!

They lack wash rooms, but the nearby toilet and shower block accommodates those needs.

The camping pods at Glen Nevis are much more basic compared to some of the higher end glamping options in Fort William and you’ll need to provide all your own bedding and towels. Nevertheless, you can’t beat the location if you’re planning to climb Ben Nevis!

Bunroy is tucked on the back of the village adjacent to the River Spean and enjoys a quiet and peaceful setting.

The camping pods here are definitely on the basic end of the spectrum, but are perfect for those on a budget looking for simplicity. The pods all feature simple cots (bring your own bedding) as well as a lovely outdoor area complete with picnic table. Most pods sleep 2-3 people, and all feature a microwave and kettle.

We recommend Bunroy Park for those looking for a quiet and family-friendly glamping experience near Fort William.

There is also a single shepherd’s hut on offer that is perfect for a couple’s getaway.

Tigh an Each B&B & Laggan Glamping

Accommodation type available: Glamping pods
Best for: Families

Located a bit further from Fort William than some of the other options, Tigh an Each B&B & Laggan Glamping is still well worth a look, especially for families. What sets these glamping pods apart from other options in this guide is the fact that they all sleep families of up to five! That isn’t something you’ll find most places, so this is our top pick for family glamping near Fort William.

In addition to the relatively spacious accommodation, pods also have en-suite showers, small kitchenettes, and access to a nice BBQ area.

You’re just 20 minutes from Loch Lagan here and just under an hour’s drive from Fort William. This is also the perfect stop over if you’re connecting a Fort William stop with a camping/glamping trip up to Aviemore in the Cairngorms, as you’ll be approximately half-way between the two popular tourist towns.

Need to Know
