Hitting the trails with a flask and a sandwich, exploring the unknown with good company and adventuring across paths rarely trodden; the guys at Canopy & Stars love getting out in nature and have plenty of places perfect for doing just that. From cabins with epic mountain views to canalside bothies with walks stretching off in all directions. Here are their top 5 cool places to stay in Scotland. 


black-shed-skye-loch-dunvegan

Black Shed, Highland

This might be called a shed, but is most definitely not your common or bottom-of-the-garden variety. Sat amongst a vast expanse of natural Highland beauty, the stunning, sleek interiors are perfectly juxtaposed by the rugged views. Set off from your door, climb up the Macleods tables and watch out for deer and eagles or head down to the shore for the chance to spot seals, otters and sea birds. At night, you may even be able to see the Northern Lights if it’s clear enough!


Braw Bothy at Spean Bridge

Braw, Highland

Bike or hike your way to this canalside bothy on the Great Glen Way, soak in the views of Loch Lochy then bunk down by the woodburner. Pretty Braw sits next to her sister Bonnie and both boltholes make a great space to sit back, relax and enjoy watching the world pass by.


Old pine yurt moray

Old Pine Yurt, Moray

On the eastern fringe of the Cairngorm National park this well thought out yurt offers isolation from all aspects of the modern world. Vast skies, beautiful hills and snaking rivers are just waiting to be uncovered. The yurt – half Ray Mears, half pampered camping – comes with its own wood burner and a decked porch for you to sit and enjoy the view.


canopy&stars2

Pilot Panther, Mhor

This classic 1950’s show wagon offers hikers a refuge with a difference! This rambling wagon has finally settled on its last location on the edges of a Perthshire loch and what a location it is! Views from every window boast stunning vistas of all the loch has to offer. Next door is an award winning restaurant, chippy and tearoom so you really can’t go wrong.

The Oldest Pub in Scotland
The Oldest Pub in Scotland

by Alexander Forsyth

The Sheep Heid inn isn't just the another old pub to be found in Edinburgh, it's the oldest pub in the whole country. With as many tales to tell, as drinks that have been served, it tells a story of pirates, poets, highwaymen, hanged criminals, kings, queens, and the odd game of skittles!
