About our home

Solid Log-cabin nestled in private woodland. A covered terrace at the front of the lodge allows guests to sit out and enjoy their own private Hot-Tub. There are bench-table and seating outside. Also a full-size Gas Plancha available too for summer BBQ's.

Open-plan living area as you enter through the french doors, with a kitchen with all modern appliances including a washer/dryer, dishwasher, coffee machine, clean dishtowels, bio-degradable ecological cleaning products and all the appliance and utensils you will need for your stay. Free Wifi and a comfortable seating area with TV, DVD player, maps and plentiful information about local attractions. A wood-burning stove with a full basket of fuel to start you off (we can supply more if need be for a small fee)

A King Size bed in the main bedroom (note to US guests, King-Size is a slightly different dimension in the UK) with wardrobe, drawer units, hairdryer and iron/ironing board available. There is an en-suite shower room with shaver socket available. The second bedroom has twin beds, which can be zipped together to make another King-Size bed. There is also a larger family bathroom with bath and another shaver socket available. Complimentary Scottish toiletries and loo paper too.

For those traveling with small children we can supply a travel-cot, highchair and fireguard.

Two well behaved pets are welcome to stay. The terrace has a gate that can be shut over so that you can relax in the knowledge that they won't be wandering off into the woodland to explore when your back is turned! There is a dog-foul bin outside, dog bowl, towel for muddy paws and some doggy treats. Please note that there is not an enclosed garden fence around the lodge. You have direct access to the woodland from your front door!

We supply all bedding and towels and there is no cleaning charge - although we do ask guests to please leave the lodge as they found it (there is a vacuum cleaner available in the lodge too!)

More about us

  1. We are a Scottish couple with two children - our eldest son is 20 and our daughter 15 years. We are both very creative and practical and have an active, hands on approach to the development of the woodland - where the lodges are ran as luxury, secluded self-catering lodges. Our ambition is to make the woodland a haven for wildlife and native species and create a special place where guests can experience this first hand. Both our kids are keen musicians, our daughter plays any brass instrument she can lay her hands on between her studies, and son a pianist and interested in a career in sound recording and production, but currently in Texas working on a hurricane relief programme. until the summer.

  2. We live and work in the Highlands of Scotland. We manage two luxury log-cabins in 12 acres of private woodland, just 3 miles from Inverness.

  3. We love travel, meeting people and submerging ourselves in new cultures. Spent many fabulous holidays in France and Europe and we love visiting family in the United States. We are privileged to have unique, cosy lodges to offer families who are interested in visiting the Highlands. It is hugely fulfilling to see guests faces when they first arrive and are 'blown over' when seeing the lodges for the first time.. We would love to share our little peace of Scottish heaven with prospective homeswappers too.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

Travel Links:- Inverness is just 10 minutes drive away. Inverness Dalcross Airport just 20 minutes drive (several direct flights a day from London, Manchester and various other cities) Car hire is available at the airport or we can come and pick you up! You can also take the 'Caledonian Sleeper' train from London to Inverness if you wish, or hop on the train direct from Glasgow or Edinburgh.

The cabin is nestled in woodland and allows guests to really get away from it all and submerge themselves in nature. There are so many birds, the feeders having to be re-filled every day! Guests often spot deer and red-squirrel and the odd fox. When they wake from their hibernation, hedgehogs can be seen bungling around in the evening too. Red-kite, buzzards and sparrow-hawks sweep in over the woodland also.

Despite it's seclusion, you can pop into Inverness easily to pick up supplies or a take-away meal. It's really quite convenient. If you want to go out for the evening for a meal or maybe to see a performance at Eden Court, a taxi home is just £20.

There are plentiful walks in all directions from the lodge, to the peak of neighboring Ord Hill (with the remains of a vitrified fort on it's peak) or a stroll up to Loch Lundie to go wild swimming (if you're brave!) also walks to the headland to overlook the Moray Firth, or along the rocky coastline and reward yourself with tea at the White House Tearooms, or a pint when you get to the pub at North Kessock
