The Difference Between Camping and Glamping?

Glamping and camping have a lot in common. They both involve getting away from it all in the great outdoors. Camping and glamping also both involve giving up some of the amenities of home to immerse yourself in nature. 

The main difference with glamping is you give up less of the amenities of home. You still have an actual roof over your head. You still get to sleep in actual beds or bunks (usually). You will most likely have a stove or fireplace to cook your food.

Wild camping in Scotland is a fantastic way to experience the country’s rugged and beautiful wilderness. However, if you’re looking for a more luxurious and comfortable camping experience, glamping might be the way to go. Alexander House, located in Scotland, offers two luxury yurts with en suite bathrooms and wood-fired hot tubs for a truly unique and romantic getaway. These yurts provide all the comforts of a hotel room while still allowing you to experience the stunning scenery of Scotland. For those who prefer a bit more of an adventurous experience, Alexander House also offers backcountry camping in Scotland for a more traditional camping experience.

For example, you could rent a fire tower lookout for the night, or a log cabin, or a mountain cabin, or any rustic or secluded cabin that brings you close to nature in the same way that camping in a tent does.
