If you are looking to increase all year-round occupancy in your self-catering project, or current business, the fully equipped Camping Pod Arch is perfect. The natural beauty of the Arches means it will sit in harmony with your rural surroundings.
Arches can be supplied with or without beds, and can be designed to sleep between 2-8 people.
In any size of Camping Pod Arch, and toilet/shower room can be incorporated within the design.
All the Camping Pod Arches are the same basic shape, with the largest Camping Pod Arch having a more usable space compared to most camping pods on the market due to the straight walls.
The width of the Camping Pod Arch can be anywhere between 2.5m and 3.4m. This is the maximum width that can be transported on roads without a movement order, thus keeping the delivery costs down for you
The length can be between 3.5m and 5m long. Again, this allows two Camping Pod Arches to be transported on a lorry load at a time, also helping with costs.
According to official government guidelines, the Camping Pod Arches can be technically described as a caravan because they are portable and delivered in one piece, thus also helping with planning permission. There are a range of accessories available, including a short or long porch, a bespoke design service, and the fitting of beds and bunks beds. Kitchens and bathroom suites can also be installed, from our trained and skilled installers and recommended sub-contractors.
The cabins can be designed to sleep 2-14 people! This gives you space to create a luxurious cabin, with free standing furniture and furnishings of your choice.
To sleep larger groups of 6-14, these cabins are designed with dormitory style bunks around the edge. These are great for youth hostels, or outdoor centres. The shape of the camping cabin is inspired by the traditional ‘kota’ cabins of Finland, where they would be used as saunas and/or barbecue cabins.
The main cabin has a floor space of 10m, 17m or even 25m squared.
A porch is fitted as standard, which can be extended to 2m if needed. Perfect for storing muddy boots, coats and bikes for example.
A side room can be added to any of these cabins in single, or more commonly double width. These are usually 3m long and can add an excellent dimension onto your camping cabin.
The cabins are supplied empty. There is the option to add in a kitchenette, shower room and various beds. We are also able to put you in touch with our preferred electricians and plumbers.
All our cabins are installed by our in-house installation team, who have many years experience of building our cabins.
Annex style lodges that offer luxurious hotel room style accommodation. These lodges can be built up to 30m sq to give you ample room to develop the internal area and finish it with your own unique touches.
The lodge has an entrance and shower room already built in, so you can choose whether to add a kitchenette area as well.
Designed to be modern and stylish with lots of natural light and opportunity for guests to enjoy your view. Our timber lodge studio buildings have a multitude of alternative uses, such as garden studios, offices, gyms, music rooms, photography studios, therapy room and so many more.
Each timber building is designed to fit your specific needs and can be clan in cedar, redwood or cedral. All of the buildings are hand built on your site, anywhere in the Scottish mainland or Islands.

I will recommend Scotia Cabins to everyone and my neighbours are definitely jealous – they would love to have one!
We had a great night in it last night and will have many more in the future!"
"The boys worked tirelessly yesterday, in miserable weather conditions and ended up with a really good result — thank you for your extraordinary efforts to please us.
Not able to resist getting into it straight away, we had our first meal in the cabin the same evening and it warmed up and dried out nicely on an equally cold and miserable evening! Very good shelter with lots of atmosphere around a glowing charcoal fire. We were full of ideas of things to equip it with, so we shot off the Edinburgh today, scoured various shops and came back with a bundle of bits and pieces.
Thanks again from two really, really pleased customers"
“The quality of the cabin is excellent, and the ancillary touches quite special – reindeer rugs, Finnish drinking cups, wooden place mats, the kettle, the clock and even the bottle opener – they really did think of everything! Our cabin has been much admired by everyone who has seen it and it really has added something quite special to our garden.
The service we received from Scotia Cabins was superb and we really feel that Caroline and Craig care passionately about the product and the service they provide. I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone looking for one of these very special buildings.”
