Great Glen Yurts
Reviewed September 9, 2013

Just returned from a 2 night stay at this amazing place. We used it as a base to climb Ben Nevis. It is just a few minutes drive from Fort William but you wouldn't know it, it's tucked away and you can see nothing more but open fields and an amazing view of Nevis.
We were a group of 3 guys staying in the Eagle Yurt and when other reviewers have said they can see Nevis from the Yurt they really were not joking, although seeing the sheer size of the mountain before you're about to climb it maybe didn't help!
The yurt is very comfortable, it was cold outside (6 degrees) but the Yurt was fine even before we lit the fire inside, it was specious enough to accommodate 3 guys with our walking gear and very clean and well maintained.
The communal area was the best I've seen, plenty of seating/dining space and a huge stove which proved very handy for cooking breakfast. The kitchen is very well equipped with all the cuttlery, pans, cups you could need, all you need to bring is food which can be stood in the fridge or freezer.
We made use of the huge BBQ on the first night and the chimnea burner on both nights to keep warm (wood is provided).
The bathroom area was very clean with running hot water sinks and 2 hot showers (amazingly good for a 'camp'. One thing I would recommend is bearing in mind this is an eco-lodge bring a decent head torch to make your way around camp at night.
The camp was fully booked when we were there but you wouldn't know it, it seemed very peaceful and quiet, prefect for walkers such as ourselves but equally for couples wishing for a romantic trip away.
Not that we'd want to, but you couldn't fault this place at all, will definitely be back

Room Tip: Eagle Yurt has an amazing view of Nevis!

Amazing week spent in the cosy comfort of a beautifully located yurt with stunning views of Ben Nevis. Being first timers to the yurt experience the whole family loved every second of our stay, even when the weather wasn't so good. We haven't stopped raving about the special time we shared in Scotland and continue to recommend Great Glen Yurts to everyone we know. Thanks for a perfect week.

Gorgeous yurts in a fantastic location. Warm and cosy and beautiful yurts, a great kitchen area - nearby compost loo (doesn't smell) and also very nearby showers, firewood store and kitchen area. The kitchen area is really well equipped, and there's plenty of seating and a brazier and barbeque too. The showers are excellent. There are candles, lanterns and all the essentials for starting fires provided. There's a huge fire pit also and we had great fun getting to know our yurt neighbours. Very friendly. Next time I will allow time to do some riding and yoga also! Many thanks great glen yurts :)

We really enjoyed the yurts. They were warm and comfortable and the location is stunning. Very relaxing. On this occasion we were part of a stag party and didn't actually spend much time on the site but I can't wait to return again with my (soon to be) wife. The hosts are very friendly and welcoming.

Friends and I booked these yurts from ym 30th birthday and I couldn't have asked for anything better. The yurts was beautifully decorated, warm and invited, clean and comfortable. The kitchen area was well equipped and a great place to hang out and the showers were the envy of all - better than any of the ones we had at home. They even have a dry composting toilet which we all greatly admired. Super easy access to Fort William and great iconic Scottish places, like Ben Nevis and the Glen Nevis. We're all already thinking about when we're going to come back again.

Just returned from a weekend with three other families and can't rate the stay at Great Glen Yurts highly enough. We took over all the yurts and therefore had the place to ourselves and would definitely recommend it for a group of people wanting to have a fun weekend. We were celebrating a 40th birthday and the owners even turned up with a cake shortly after we arrived. The yurts themselves are very comfortable and the log burners keep them very warm. Our children (7 of them, mainly teenagers) disappeared for hours at a time into the woods behind the camp and had a ball. We are already talking about when the next trip can be.

Really cosy and beautifully finished yurts, lots of thought gone into every last detail. Amazing view of ben nevis! Pretty walks nearby. Thoroughly recommend it. Communal kitchen in the middle which is a bit chilly but well equipt.
