We also make yurts and lived in one for a year or two when working on other farms. Folk started asking and occasional orders began coming in and continue to do so. Mongolian abodes adapted to the Scottish climate, they are great for camping in style or ideal as an extra room in the garden.

For sale: 10ft diameter yurt, it’s a perfect extra room. A single bed, sofa and chest of drawers fits in nicely. Made with hazel coppice poles, water/fire/rot resistant 12oz canvas, wooden door & comes with a clear crown cover – perfect for cloud or star gazing. Price £1950.
