Comrie Croft Nordic Katas

Nordic Katas - think wigwams, set in the woodland near Comrie. Sleep 4 but lovely for 2 in wood framed bed. Includes woodburning stove inside.

These unique handmade kata tents are the ultimate wild camping experience without the hardship of a cramped tent. Drift to sleep to the sound of the deer and owls outside, or (if you are lucky) the silence of snow falling!

The katas are erected on untreated larchwood platforms. Four of the five are set in open birch woodland around 1-2 minutes walk from the main facilities of the croft. The fifth kata is on the low meadow so has a more open outlook and is most convenient for access to the facilities or your car and has been designed for disabled accessibility.

You can stay cosy in them in all weather using the wood-burning stove in the centre of the tent. People have stayed in them happily when its -15C outside! They are cosily furnished with sheepskins, cushions, oil lamps and solar powered lighting, and all the camping essentials you need, including homemade furniture.

The new katas were hand-crafted to make them really amazing. They now have more space and usable floor area, natural light coming in through translucent material at the top, a cute wooden door (no more zips!), felt insulation on the walls. Other new and improved features are being added all the time. 

  • 6 metre diameter tipi style tents, all completely waterproof.
  • Equipped for 6, comfortable for 4 and amazing for two - the hand-crafted alpine style bed is one huge comfy area insulated with covered sheepswool - so it works best if you all know each other quite well.
  • Included inside: wood-burning stove for cooking & heating, 1 sack of firewood (more is available @ £6/sack), sheepskins, cushions and throws, all basic necessities for 6 people to cook, eat & clean up.
  • Included outside: campfire brazier made from a recycled wheel, and a hammock.
  • 1-2 minutes walk to piping hot showers, toilets and other facilities including tea/coffee making, lockers with charging points (£1) & a microwave.
