Monster Yurt


So New Years Eve. I know it was a while ago but it's all Wintery here in the North of England so I figured it would be nice to share these pictures with you guys. Myself, Rob, my mom, Sarah, her boyfriend Joe and Marmite all headed up to Glenshee for a few nights to bring in 2016.

It started off really well. We booked to stay in the Monster Yurt at Ecocamp Glenshee for a few nights. It is sort of like a basic and environmentally friendly glamping site just a short drive from the snowy slopes of the Glenshee Ski Centre. Even though the weather was terrible (more about that later) is was super cute and cosy with all the good things about camping with less wet and a little more warmth.

So the Monster Yurt sleeps 10 (perfect for us 6) so it was snuggely but not too cramped and decorated in a Turkish theme with a mix match of rugs on the floor, bunting and so many candles. There is also a wood burning stove to provide the yurt with warmth and an oven and hob for cooking and making marshmellowy hot chocolates.

The first night which was NYE we had a roast pork made in the wood burning stove, drank plenty of Prosecco and played games. We settled down for a cosy nights sleep, waking up to a smattering of snow. Yey! Although no where near enough to ski which was the main reason why went up there in the first place.

Because of the lack of snow we had a lazy morning cooking breaky together before stepping outside for such a beautiful wintery walk.
