Today’s edition of The Independent has a double page spread – In a Field of Their Own – covering luxury ‘campsites’ across Britain.
The Scottish version featured is a set of three geodesic domes – called Ecopods – found at Lettershuna, near Appin in North Argyll. The pods have views to Castle Stalker, designer furniture, high end kitchens, libraries of digital entertainment (if that’s not a contradiction in terms) and a Japanese hot tub made of cedarwood.
They look awfully seductive. Two pods are in operation now with the third ready soon. Each has a wonderful pamoramic window.
They sit amongst birches and rhododendrons. They’re flooded with light. They’re not cramped – 70 square metres. They’re available year round and the cost of a three night break starts at £495,
This has to be yet another good reason to explore inner space and stay in Scotland.
