BUCKLE UP FOR SCOTLAND’S FIRST GLAMPING PLANE
The tiny Stirlingshire village of Thornhill is set to become home to Scotland’s only airplane glamping experience.
We’ve just added a Scottish Aviation Twin Pioneer to our picturesque, rural wigwam site www.mainsfarmwigwams.com
We’ll transform the classic high-winged plane into a one of kind holiday home by summer 2019.
In 2016 we put Thornhill on the map by converting a Royal Navy Sea King Helicopter into glamping accommodation which featured on Channel 4’s Amazing Spaces. Book your stay at www.helicopterglamping.com
Designed and built in Prestwick in 1959, Twin Pioneers were Scotland’s most successful aircraft of the era. Their unique design meant they were able to take off and land within an area of just 30 metres by 275 metres.
G-APRS, or Primrose as she is affectionately known by those who flew her, was one of last flying Twin Pioneers in the world. She faithfully served on civilian and military missions for nearly 50 years, before being retired because of her ageing wing struts.
We’re delighted to be bringing her back home to Scotland where we’ll convert her into a first-class glamping experience. We’re sure that like our Sea King she’ll attract holiday makers looking for a unique experience and aviation enthusiasts alike.
The distinctive red, white and blue plane has an impressive 76ft wing span and comes complete with engine, full cockpit and 14 passenger seats.
