What better way to introduce a little green into your life than a luxury staycation in an Ecopod on the banks of Loch Linnhe, in the west coast of Scotland. It may be planet friendly, but it has all the indulgences of a five-star hotel – design classics (Eames, Pieff et al), modern appliances, supreme comfort and a knock-out view.

Sticking with the view for a second, Castle Stalker, below – one of the most photographed landmarks in these parts – will look even nicer from your position in a Japanese cedar hot tub, while you tuck into a welcome hamper of locally sourced goodies. Owner Jim makes sure your stay is tailor made, and sends out a short questionnaire before your arrival to ensure you have a selection of favourite films and music ready at the touch of a button. Pop onto the site to see the blissful bedroom, then get booking.
