If you ever fancied spending your days like the Swiss Family Robinson, you’ll likely enjoy a stay in Scotland’s magical tree house, which is open to visitors all year round. Aptly named the Tree Howf, this beautifully designed and crafted treehouse is situated beside a majestic ancient Ash Tree, and offers its guests 360-degree views over one of Scotland’s most stunning natural sights, the Orchil Hills.

Located in Perthshire, about ten miles from Dunblane, Craighead Howf is in the perfect location for you to explore more of Scotland, including The Hermitage, a National Trust site which sits on the banks of the River Braan in Craigvinean Forest, and the Pitlochry Festival Theatre, which offers a wide variety of productions and a cafe-bar with river views.

Truly an oasis of calm, you can wake up in the morning to the sound tweeting (and we’re not talking about Twitter notifications) before testing out your breakfast cooking skills on its traditional wood burning oven. Whether you’re enjoying an afternoon BBQ or sitting back to enjoy the surrounding two acres of ground and gardens, the character and quirks of this home away from home are hard to beat.
