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.
