“Westward B&B would like to welcome you to our new glamping accommodation.

Designed and built by Alistair with the help of some skilled friends, the huts have been a constructed using sustainable, locally sourced timber and are topped off with a turf roof. Douglas Fir has been used to create the frame, whilst Larch is used for the cladding. All the logs have been milled on-site using our own woodmizer sawmill.


“We are based in the Scottish Highlands, next to the spectacular scenery of Glen Affric in the small village of Cannich”

The Huts are perfect for glamping containing:

  • 2 small single beds,
  • A fully equipped mini-kitchen with fridge, hob, microwave + sink,
  • An ensuite shower/toilet,
  • free wifi,

  • Dogs are welcome and are charged at £5 per night.

The Eco-huts are set in the land adjoining the house and garden which is covered by wild meadow. Each hut has a deck on which to sit and relax after a busy day down the Glens. There is a designated area for BBQs or campfires.

Prices start at £60 per night for 2 sharing on self catering basis. Minimum 2 nights stay.
Dogs are welcome and are charged at £5 per night.
