Caledonian Glamping The Highlands
Caledonian Glamping is based in Cannich – a small village in the Scottish Highlands, next to the spectacular scenery of Glen Affric.
We offer sturdy, timber-framed Eco Huts that have been designed and built by ourselves using sustainable, locally sourced timber. Caledonian Glamping is a recent self-catering addition to our B&B accommodation here at Westward. All logs used to construct the Huts have been milled on site using our own woodmizer sawmill. Douglas Fir has been used to create the frame and Larch is used for the cladding. The Huts are topped off with a turf roof.

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,
- Seating area
- free wifi,
- Bed linen and towels are provided
The Eco-huts are set in the land adjoining the house and garden which is covered by wild meadow. Each 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. Both Eco-Huts have the same facilities but Hut One has been plastered-boarded and contains 2 small single beds, whilst Hut Two has been left without plaster board and has two standard single beds.
Prices start at £65 per night for 2 sharing on self catering basis. Minimum 2 nights stay.
Dogs are welcome and are charged at £5 per night. A welcome tray of tea/coffee is provided.
The village shop is just a 5 minute walk away if you need to stock up

Cannich is on the doorstep of the National Nature Reserve Glen Affric, with its Caledonian pinewoods along with a wide range of wildlife. Look out for the red deer, red squirrels, otter, pine martins and much more.
We are directly on the route of the Affric- Kintail way, a superb, cross country long distance trail that takes in a variety of landscapes and stunning views. For more details visit The Affric-Kintail-Way website.
The area is a peaceful place to relax and take in scenery, but for the more active there is the option to participate in many outdoor sports, including: walking, cycling, fishing, riding, golf and canoeing. For more information visit Glenaffric.info
There are many less strenuous walks along lochs, rivers and forestry trails enabling the visitor to get amidst the wild beauty of Scotland. Visit the forestry commission for a guide.
Westward is only a short distance from Loch Ness. Take the chance to visit the Loch Ness Monster exhibition, cruise the loch and explore Urquhart Castle. If you need a rest from the rural idyll, Inverness “the Capital of the Highlands” is just 25 miles away. See Visitinvernesslochness for more information.
