Ecofriendly ‘Glamping’ Dome in Scotland

This vacation house, a cocoon nestled in a birch forest on the edge of a small cliff in Scotland, is visible only from the sea. Outside its dome membrane are panoramic views of the Sound of Lorne and Castle Stalker, made famous by Monty Python and the Holy Grail — views best enjoyed from the outdoor hot tub. Inside, “you feel like you’re really part of the surroundings instead of imposing on your surroundings,” says homeowner Jim Milligan. “It’s like the dome has been there forever, just like the trees.”

The homeowners open their dome to vacationers who want a taste of the “glamping” (glam camping) experience as well.

Houzz at a Glance
A vacation home for: Jim Milligan and Nicola Meekin
Location: Oban, Scotland
Size: 807 square feet
That’s interesting: The dome overlooks the famous Castle Stalker, more commonly known as “Castle Aaargh” in Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

Go ‘Glamping’ In NYC

Want to get your glamp on? We at Gadling have had our fair share of fun with the term “glamping” and its addition to the travel lexicon, although we’ll admit that our experience actually practicing the technique last summer was quite fun.

But now, travelers don’t have to head to Adirondaks or Montana to camp, luxe style. AKA New York is launching the second “season” of its “Sleep Under the Stars” experience, where travelers can “glamp” on the hotel’s rooftop between now and Labor Day.

Set on the 17th floor, the 1,000-square-foot wraparound terrace will be home to a plush queen-size bed set in front of a wood-burning fireplace, complete with:

  •     Cocktails using A Vod, AKA’s signature vodka
  •     Midnight snacks of gourmet Jacque Torres s’mores, cheese and crackers, strawberries and Champagne
  •     High tech flashlight and camping lantern
  •     Outdoor mood music and scented candles to enhance the “celestial ambiance”
  •     State-of-the-art telescope for stargazing
  •     Nook Simple Touch e-reader loaded with campfire stories
  •     42-inch plasma screen TV and DVD player with a selection of classic black and white movies
  •     Breakfast with coffee or tea at a.cafe

We note it does not come with earplugs for the city noise below but, at $1,999 a night, we’re pretty sure you can request them.
