Glamping Cabins

stay in A one-of-a-kind glamping cabin OR TREEHOUSE, designed by artists and renovated with modern, interior-designed styling.

fishing hut and stilt house are unique, quirky and beautiful. Both cabins have their own space, are surrounded by nature, sit next to the river and will make for an unforgettable hideaway holiday in Scotland.

With dark skies, babbling rivers and incredible scenery, Dod Mill is a superb place for glamping in Scotland. Our treehouse and river cabins have been designed to help you unwind and bring you close to nature – and that’s what glamping Holidays in Scotland are all about.

Stilt House is a treehouse cabin, between our mill pond and river, and our Fishing Hut is a cabin which sits right on the bank of the little river. There is nothing more relaxing than falling asleep hearing gentle sounds of the river.

Owners Ruth and Jamie Knibbs have designed Dod Mill’s glamping cabins to offer Scottish glamping which doesn’t compromise on style. The cabins are artist-designed with interiors to rival the Great British Design Challenge!

Dod Mill’s treehouse and river cabin sit on opposite banks of the Boondreigh Water and its woodland. The cabins each have their own space, but if you’d like to come with friends, it’s only a short walk via a stunning bridge.

Glamping at Dod Mill gets you close to nature. You can spot heron, wild ducks, owls, countless small bird species, hare, deer, rabbits, salmon, trout, frogs and, if you are very lucky, even otters.

Dod Mill cabins have two little herds of sheep, including rarebreed Castlemilk Moorits. They are shy but love to be fed and guests can ask to assist in shepherding duties!

River Cabin

Fishing Hut river cabin - a glamping stay for a glamping holiday in Scotland

We are sure you’ll never have stayed in a glamping cabin quite like Fishing Hut before. This is a half-vintage-caravan-half-wilderness-cabin located on the bank of the babbling Boondreigh in the Scottish Borders. It’s packed with personality but located in utter tranquility.

Fishing Hut is an off-grid eco cabin, with solar powering the lights, a woodburning stove for cooking and heating, and a very nice compost toilet. The Boondreigh Water provides the soundtrack to your stay.

Our unique cabin was built by an artist in the late 1990s or early 2000s, and it was fully renovated for glamping in 2020.

Treehouse Cabin

For anyone looking for a treehouse in Scotland, Stilt House is a wonderful place to stay.

We can fill up the mill pond for you if you’d like to swim, bring a paddleboard or canoe. It’s not quite a loch, but still gives you a chance for wild swimming and learning the basics of SUPping!

Phil Crennell, woodworker and artist, was the original creator of Stilt House. In 2020, Stilt House was completely renovated but we’ve kept our favourite parts of Phil’s design including the stilts (of couse!), a repurposed chapel door, the amazing arch ceiling, corrugated tin roof and some of the original interior touches too.

Stilt House is a a treehouse in Scotland suitable for anyone looking for a treehouse holiday in Scotland.
