by

Looking for some of the most beautiful treehouses in Scotland that you (yes you!) can stay in?

Well, you’ve come to the right place because I’ve rounded up the 15 best treehouses in Scotland!

From treehouses with hot tubs to treehouses on a private beach, there are plenty to choose from.

So sit back, relax, and get ready to book the staycation of a lifetime!

1. The Treehouses at Lanrick

Price per night: From £238 for 2 people and £318 for 4 people

Location: Lanrick, Perthshire

The Treehouses at Lanrick are some of my all-time favourite treehouses in Scotland.

And once you’ve clicked through some of their photos, I’m sure you’ll quickly see why!

Beautiful, well-equipped and filled to the brim with amazing amenities, these treehouses give the word ‘luxury’ a whole new meaning.

Situated on the banks of the River Teith in a private woodland setting, these luxury retreats are all unique but they all they benefit from the same amazing amenities.

These amenities include a log burning stove, a spacious tree top terrace, an outdoor bath, luxury furniture, a super king-size bed, and so much more!

I guess you’ll just have to go discover them for yourself…

What guests say: “This place is idyllic. Seriously. From driving into the start of the estate right up to the treehouse we knew it was special! Then to have a roaring fire to greet us as well as the luxurious decor- wow! Everything about our trip was special – the walks in the ground, having an evening drink by the river watching a fly fisher, and the outdoor bathing.”

2. Tree Howf at Craighead Farm

Price per night: From £185 for 2 people

Location: Dunblane, Perthshire

Tree Howf at Craighead Farm is pretty much what a kid conjures up when they dream about their fantasy treehouse.

But make no mistake: Tree Howf only sleeps two people, making it a romantic bolt hole for you and your partner.

It’s perhaps the cosiest treehouse on this list – in fact, it reminds me of something from Winnie the Pooh!

The indoor space benefits from a handmade rustic king-size bed with a stargazing window, a wood burning stove, internal cooking facilities, a dining space, and a shower.

And that’s not to mention the spectacular 360 degree views it has over the Ochil Hills and beyond.

This might just be one of my all-time favourite treehouses in the world, let alone Scotland.

What guests say: “We were warmly welcomed by Ian and Heather to their exceptional quirky delightful treehouse which more than exceeded our expectations.. The experience was enhanced by all the animals we were introduced to and the feeling of solitude provided by the treehouse’s clever positioning. A wonderful place to visit.”

3. The Treehouse Suite at Ackergill Tower Hotel

Price per night: From £200 for 2 people

Location: Ackergill, Scottish Highlands

I’m sure the exterior of The Treehouse Suite already has you intrigued – I know it certainly caught my eye!

This unique, lavishly furnished, two-storey space will provide memories that last a lifetime.

From the large circular bath to the luxurious 7ft round bed, it seems that the suite is round through-and-through.

But who can complain when it’s just so unbelievably unique?

Want to know another fun fact?

The suite was opened by none other than HRH Prince Charles.

If it’s good enough for royalty, it’s good enough for us!

4. Dalnoid Treehouses

Price per night: From £210 for 2 people

Location: Blairgowrie, Perthshire

Dalnoid is home to two treehouses, The Scots Pine and The Silver Birch.

Out of any other treehouses with hot tubs in the UK, these are the ones that feel most like modern holiday homes, rather than treehouses.

Setting a new standard in self-catering accommodation, the treehouses feel more akin to luxury hotel suites, with their spacious lounge areas, fully-equipped kitchens and luxurious bathrooms.

On top of this, you can also expect a super-king size bed below a glass pyramid skylight, and a wood-burning stove with a free supply of logs.

With beautiful river and mountain views and that much-sought-after hot tub, Dalnoid is practically paradise.

What guests say: “Every bit of our stay was perfect down to the little details. The hot tub and wood-burning fire were our favourite parts. The treehouse is so unique and quirky! It was absolute bliss to be secluded sitting in a dreamy hot tub with beautiful views of the glens with a glass of champagne and the whole place to ourselves.”

5. Brockloch Treehouse

Price per night: From £165 for 2 people

Location: Crocketford, Dumfries and Galloway

Brockloch Treehouse is easily one of my favourite treehouses in Scotland.

It may be relatively small compared to some of the other options on this list but that only makes it all the more romantic.

Nestled in its very own bluebell wood surrounded by native broadleaved trees and the odd red squirrel, this treehouse is best visited during spring.

The treehouse itself is off-grid (with a small kitchen area with a two ring gas hob and fridge) making it a great option for those who want to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of modern life.

The lack of Wi-Fi provides the perfect opportunity for you and your loved one to spend some quality time together.

Plus, both the bath and double bed have a skylight above for stargazing so you certainly won’t feel like you’re skimping on romance here.

What guests say: “I can’t overstate how much we enjoyed our stay. The attention to detail was incredible. We had everything we could have wanted or needed. It was simple and stripped back yet still felt extravagant. The smells when you walk in reminded me of a luxury spa and lying in bed or in the bath looking up through the skylight at the starry sky was simply heavenly.”

6. Harvest Moon Holidays Treehouses

Price per night: From £92 for 6 people

Location: Tyninghame, East Lothian

Harvest Moon Holidays is home to some of my personal favourite treehouses in Scotland, because I stayed in one of their safari tents a few years back.

To say my trip was incredible would be an understatement, and while I haven’t stayed in their treehouses before, I’m sure they are just as incredible as their tents.

And what makes them even better is that they’re the cheapest option on this list!

With prices starting from just £15 per person per night, you really can’t go wrong, especially when you’ll be sleeping on the beach.

Yep, that’s right: the beach!

In your treehouse, you’re just a stones throw from an expansive, private white sandy beach.

In fact, you can see the sand dunes from the comfort of your own bed!

To say this is paradise would be an understatement.

What guests say: “Well where do I start. From the moment you turn off the main road up the path towards the treehouses you can feel the relaxation starting to kick in. The treehouse is magical for children. It is well equipped for everything you might need. The location is just sensational. All the treehouses look out over the dunes and farmland. You really do feel a million miles away from the world.”

7. The Tree Hoose

Price per night: From £215 for 3 people

Location: Letters, Scottish Highlands

I can’t get enough of The Tree Hoose, mainly because it wouldn’t look out of place in a Scandinavian forest.

Easily my favourite thing about this treehouse is its expansive windows that allow you to soak up the elevated panoramic woodland views.

Similarly, you can view the the night skies through the large skylights.

Talk about romantic!

The open-plan living space is seriously well-equipped with underfloor heating, a wood-burning stove, a king-size bed, single bed/window seat conversion, a fully fitted kitchen with induction hob and electric oven, and an en-suite bathroom.

Phew, that’s a lot!

Basically what I’m saying is that you’ll be left wanting for absolutely nothing if you book a stay here.

What guests say: “The place is very comfortable and well-designed, with everything you need to have a very good time. The area is stunning, with loads to do and see, especially if you like the great outdoors. Anne-Marie and Michael were very kind and friendly; the cake left to welcome us was delicious and the hens provided us with a succession of very tasty eggs for breakfast.”

8. The Treehouse at the Lodge on Loch Goil

Location: Loch Goil, Argyll and Bute

Okay so I hate to be the bearer of bad news but unfortunately, you can’t actually stay in this treehouse…

However, it’s too good to miss off this list of the best treehouses in Scotland!

The Treehouse at the Lodge on Loch Goil‘s tag line is ‘elevated excellence’ and that’s exactly what you can expect to receive if you get to visit it.

‘But how can I visit it?’, I hear you cry.

Well, sadly you can only access this enchanting treehouse if you tie the knot at The Lodge.

Quite a big commitment, huh?

But if you are tempted to get married at this dreamy 5-star wedding venue, I can tell you that the treehouse can accommodate eight seated for dinner or 24 people for a ceremony.

What guests say: “We were treated like royalty. The hospitality and service was first class from start to finish. Dinner in the treehouse was an incredible fusion of fantastic food from the new tasting menu and surroundings which defy words. Location, amenities and superb service combined to make this a place we’ll be recommending to anyone who cares to listen to us waxing lyrical about it.”

9. Fernie Castle Treehouse

Price per night: From £375 for 2 people

Location: Letham, Angus

Fernie Castle Treehouse is another of these treehouses in Scotland that appeals to the big kid in all of us.

With its fairytale turrets and enchanting interior, the place just exudes magic!

There’s so much to love about this treehouse that I’ll just name a few of my favourites: a huge slipper bath under a chandelier of leaves and flowers, a fridge full of champagne, chocolates and other goodies, a huge elm king-sized bed, and three balconies all with amazing views (and one even has a swing!).

If that list doesn’t have you rushing to book a stay here then I’m not sure what will.

What guests say: “As you approach the treehouse you get a sense of being in a fairytale. The treehouse is huge! It’s very spacious but cosy at the same time. The treehouse came with loads of extras including a cheeseboard, Prosecco, beers, fizzy drinks, crisps, and a prepared continental breakfast with fruit juice and milk.”

10. Loch Lomond Tree House

Price per night: From £159 for 2 people

Location: Croftamie, Stirling

Loch Lomond Tree House is easily one of the most romantic treehouses in Scotland.

I mean if the outdoor bath and fairy lights won’t convince you, I’m not sure what will.

Built in to a tree overlooking a mature, magical garden, the treehouse’s outdoor space is just as impressive as inside.

Alongside your hot tub, you’ve also got sun loungers, cosy seating by a wood-burning stove, and a BBQ to enjoy, as well as the amazing views they’re accompanied by.

Similarly, the inside is really well-equipped with everything you could need, including a light and healthy breakfast with tea and coffee.

What guests say: “What a fabulous place to stay! Lots of thought has gone into every detail. From the footed bath complete with bubble bath and candles on hand, to the pastries for breakfast and the lovely store with an honesty box. After leisurely baths under fairy lights, we read books and played board games in front of the roaring log burner.”

11. Stilt House

Price per night: From £100 for 3 people

Location: Lauder, Scottish Borders

Stilt House is certainly one of the more unique treehouses in Scotland, and with surroundings that beautiful, you’re pretty much in paradise!

Set between a mill pond and a river, the treehouse enjoys a slower pace of life, making it ideal for those who need some good old R&R.

The inside of the treehouse is just as unique as its exterior, with black beams, a pointed wooden door, and other eclectic features.

Moreover, the large windows perfectly frame the view out to the mill pond, meaning you can enjoy the scenery without even getting out of your cosy king-size bed.

Take a peak inside and I promise you’ll never want to leave!

What guests say: “We had the most relaxing long weekend. It rained on and off the whole time but it was so nice listening to the rain on the cabin roof while we kept warm with the log burning stove. It just added to the experience. The interior of the cabin is gorgeous and cosy with lots of style and the kitchen is really well equipped.”

12. The Treehouse

Price per night: From £100 for 7 people

Location: Boat of Garten, Scottish Highlands

Looking for holiday accommodation for a big group of people but don’t want to lose that treehouse feel?

Then look no further than The Treehouse.

Set in the heart of the Scottish Highlands in an acre of mature pine and birch woodland, staying here means staying among some of Scotland’s best scenery.

Elevated to maximise the views of the Cairngorm Mountains, and with a modern well-equipped interior, the treehouse will soon feel like a home-away-from-home.

You’ll enjoy a break here no matter rain or shine (this is Scotland, after all!), whether you’re curled up in front of the imposing log burner or enjoying a barbeque out on the deck.

What guests say: “From arrival to departure we have had the most wonderful stay. We couldnt have asked for more. From location and weather to the house itself, everything was simply wonderful. Outstanding views from the balcony and set in wonderful forest woodland. The treehouse is such a pleasure to arrive back to in the evening with the cosy log fire and a nice glass of wine.”

13. Kinlochlaich Treehouse

Location: Kinlochlaich, Argyll and Bute

There are endless things to love about Kinlochlaich Treehouse.

Firstly, the treehouse is hidden away in an 18th-century orchard overlooking a woodland burn, with an oak tree in its centre.

This means nature really is at the heart of this stay!

Secondly, the unique octagonal shape of the property is unlike anything you’ve probably ever seen before, but in the best way possible.

Finally, the treehouse is ridiculously well-equipped with everything you could possibly need and more.

And to top it all off, it’s filled with lots of unique features such as a spiral staircase that leads to a mezzanine gallery that has reading nook written all over it!

What guests say: “We stayed here with the intention of exploring Glencoe and the mountains, islands and sea around Oban. This we achieved but it was hard to leave this unique, cosy and homely property every morning! The property was clean and tidy with all that we needed to help us have a great week away from it all.”

14. Treetops Tree House

Price per night: From £130 for 2 people

Location: Munlochy, Ross and Cromarty

Elevated high off the ground, Treetops Tree House really is in the ‘treetops’.

By far my favourite thing about this treehouse is its spacious decking which has ample seating, a gas camping stove and pizza oven, and incredible views to match.

The inside of the off-grid treehouse is simple and cosy with the highlight being the comfortable double bed from which you can admire the woodland views.

Spend your days getting out in nature before retreating to the wood burner with a hot chocolate or glass of wine in hand.

Delicious!

What guests say: “Wow, what an incredible place to stay. Really beautiful treehouse, waking up in the woods. The room was cosy and warm and listening to the pitter patter of rain was bliss. It was so fun to be able to make pizza. I couldn’t recommend this place more if you want a peaceful, chilled out and off grid experience.”

15. Treetop View Treehouse

Price per night: From £96 for 2 people

Location: Twynholm, Dumfries and Galloway

Last but absolutely by no means least on this list of the best treehouses in Scotland, we have Treetop View Treehouse.

It says it on the tin but if this treehouse delivers on anything, it’s good views!

Luckily for you, the large windows maximise views so you can soak up the scenery without ever leaving the treehouse.

Personally, the armchair by the log burner has my name written alllll over it!

The rest of the hut is pretty rustic but this means you can get the camping experience without any of the faff of putting up a tent.

Oh, and with a few added luxuries thrown in for good measure.

What guests say: “We woke up to beautiful views from the treetops in the mornings and spent our evenings by the fire. We loved the remote location and the sounds of wildlife nearby. The whole trip was very cosy and wholesome. Firewood was very kindly provided and nothing was too much bother.”
