The experience of seeing a plot of land and being excited about its potential was too powerful to allow those barriers to stop our co-founders, Calum and Alisdair, so they forged ahead.
Unable to find any specialist designers or architects who really understood glamping, they had to find another way. And by leaning into their professional expertise, they managed to make it work.
One thing Calum and Alisdair understood from the start was the needs of their guests. They paired this innate knowledge with thorough market research to come up with a marketing strategy, which they implemented long before their site was ready to open.
After a steep learning curve, the pair managed to create an award winning glamping site. Calum, using his background in design and CAD, designed the site himself.
After gaining planning permission, they continued to execute their plans and opened their glamping site in 2018. Thanks to their early marketing, the site opened with a fantastic occupancy rate and has continued to attract guests from all across the country.
It was a real no-brainer to take the next step, which was using everything they learned while building their site to help others do the same. And that’s what they’ve been doing ever since.
