Tourists visiting Cairngorms National Park (Scotland) will soon be able to enjoy the stunning landscape from the comfort of luxurious glamping accommodations set to open near Tomintoul.
According to a report, Wigwam Holidays Glenlivet, located in the middle of the Cairngorms, will feature 14 luxurious en-suite cabins and is set to open on Wednesday, April 6.
The new cabins are situated close to the village of Tomintoul, which is known as one of the highest villages in Scotland.
Over the last two years, the Cairngorms National Park has grown into an increasingly popular tourist destination as international travel paused because of COVID-19.
People, therefore, looked for locations in the UK for a holiday, with the Highlands and Moray offering a variety of opportunities for those who enjoy the great outdoors.
The latest initiative of Wigwam Holidays, the UK’s largest provider of glamping facilities, is set to be part of more than 30 sites all over Scotland.
The new site will provide visitors with various attractions within the area, including BikeGlenlivet, Lecht Ski Centre, and the Speyside Whisky Trail.
Charles Gulland, managing director of Wigwam Holidays, said they are thrilled to finally launch and bring the project to fruition.
“We worked very closely with Crown Estate Scotland, and after securing grant funding, this new site will not only offer one of the finest outdoor holiday experiences but is also expected to bring significant economic benefits to the local community,” Gulland said.
Mark Johnston, head ranger at Glenlivet Estate, said that those keen to spot wildlife wouldn’t be disappointed as the area is a stronghold for breeding wading birds with a great viewing hide on the edge of Tomintoul.
“There are plenty of other wild wonders to see too, from eagle and black grouse to hares and pine marten, while fishing is available on the Avon and Livet – two famous salmon rivers,” Johnston added.
“And if you still have energy late in the day, Glenlivet’s skies are fabulous for stargazing, with three registered dark sky discovery sites.” Johnston ended.
