These wigwams are perfect for a countryside getaway, the owner Lesley couldn't have been more helpful. They have 7 wigwams, each with their own outdoor fire-pit, picnic bench and porch, all wigwams are in a line so all get the same beautiful view. I think all wigwams had fridges but it may only be some - it should be noted...

Went for a girls break to celebrate a friend's birthday. Accommodation excellent. Facilities in main building superb and spotlessly clean. Owners very friendly and helpful and the farm tour was good fun, especially since it was lambing season. Would definitely go back.

Spent a night up here with a group of great friends,had to book all the wigwams. The main building was great,fab set up and warm n clean with access to cooking facilities etc. The wigwam we had the window latch was broken so having the little electric heater on was a waste of time,lucky 4 of us shared it.

Hi Margaret. I am glad you all had a fantastic time the reviews in our guest book on site certainly echo this. It is unfortunate the cost of your stay was split between you all rather than taking into account those staying in the ensuite wigwams. We do have a single night supplement however most sites would not allow you...

There was a large...

We arrived here on Friday early evening. We were met by Lesley who was absolutely lovely. We were shown to our wigwam and where all the facilities were. We weren't there much as we had dinner reservations, got back late and had a 6am start before heading to fort William. Perfect if you wish to stay for a few nights...

Just home from a wonderful long weekend at Hillycow wigwams! Spotless facilities and great kitchen/games room! The wigwams were perfect for our family of four! We opted for an ensuite wigwam as our children are quite young and it was great! The toilets/shower room on site are, however, right next to the wigwams and are spotless. We paid a little...

Myself, my husband and 10 year old daughter have just returned from a super 2 night stay at Hilly Cow Wigwams and would highly recommend this to anyone! We wanted to go to Edinburgh tattoo for my 40th birthday and found city centre accommodation so expensive in August, so thought this would be the perfect alternative. The wigwams are really...
