Glamping – A Bonk & Co Field Guide.
There’s no doubt that this modern trend of retiring to remote places while maintaining the trappings of luxury is now extremely popular.
Here are a few suggestions that allow you to camp out with a few home comforts.
1. Jero Yurt
First conceived by designer, Uula Jero, in 2009, the yurt was borne from a desire to live more closely with the outdoors, while exploring the benefits of living in a circular space.

Typically built from hewn wood, comprising of a lattice wall and long roof poles leading up to a heavy crown, the yurt is a semi-permanent structure built for year-round use. It’s ability to be transported with ease, by mule or oxen, made it a popular dwelling that is still in use around the world today. Trakke are a Glasgow based company, so your adventure begins right around the corner!

3. Safari Roof Top Tents
Scotland Overland Land Rovers enable access to places that ordinary camper vans can’t go, allowing you to set up camp anywhere; on the beach or deep in the forest. The roof tents allow you to set camp in under 5 minutes and provide comfortable accommodation with a view. Everything needed for wild camping is included: just turn up with your toothbrush and go!
