Boris Johnson 'pitched holiday tent in Scots farmer's field without permission'

Boris Johnson spent his holiday hiding out in a tepee near a £1200-a-week cottage in the Highlands.

Despite the UK battling the coronavirus pandemic and a recession, the Prime Minister chose to go glamping at a remote three-bedroom rental in Lonbain, Applecross, with fiancee Carrie Symonds, their baby Wilfred and their dog Dilyn.

Johnson sparked fury this week as he left his deputies to deal with the fallout over the school exams grading scandal in England while he enjoyed his family jollies.

It’s understood the PM is no longer at the luxury Old School House cottage.

Downing Street had made no secret of BoJo’s plans to take a holiday with the 32-year-old mother of his new son and there had been rumours for weeks that they planned to travel to Scotland.

The Tory leader was photographed at the property on Wednesday, looking windswept and carefree in a beanie hat.

The secluded Old School House boasts spectacular views towards the islands of Raasay, Rona and Skye.

A tent was pitched near the cottage, with the family having reportedly chosen to camp for a few nights of their stay.

But a farmer last night claimed Johnson pitched the tent in his field without permission.

Kenny Cameron said: “Usually if people want to go inside a fenced area they ask for permission first, but I was not asked at all.

“He could have put up his tent in the garden of the cottage and there would have been no problem – but he didn’t do that.”

Staff reportedly apologised to Cameron, telling him they and the PM thought the field was part of the cottage.

No10 said Johnson had been working throughout Westminster’s summer recess before taking his holiday.
