Caledonian Glamping: Hut made from local woods

General

  • Timber-framed ensuite mini cabins with heating and mini kitchen
  • A few minutes' drive from Glen Affric and 20 minutes from Loch Ness
  • Cannich's pub and village store within a few minutes' walk

Want a woodland stay? Go the whole Highlands hog and hole up in a log cabin crafted from the native trees among which it dwells.

Your friendly hosts at Invernesshire site Caledonian Glamping have designed and built their wooden hut using locally-sourced Douglas fir, larch and a turf roof, helping the comfy and eco-friendly ensuite lodge blend with its scenic surrounds.

And what surrounds they are: the immediate view is of a pretty wildflower meadow, with Caledonian pine trees behind and gorgeous Glen Affric nature reserve a five-minute drive down the road. Beyond that, well, you’ve got a whole heap of Highlands treats ahead, including walks through Glen Cannich and Glen Strathfarrar and lakeside ambles by Loch Ness. Fishing, climbing, horse riding, bike rides and kayaking can all be on the schedule for folks seeking a bit more alfresco action.

It’s likely you’ll have had a bit of a journey to get here (such is the way with proper rural retreats…) so you’ll no doubt be chuffed to note that a welcome tray of tea and coffee will greet your arrival. Eats and drinks after that are up to you: a couple of minutes’ saunter gets you to the village of Cannich for pub meals or to pick up supplies for cooking back at base. The hut’s been kitted out with a well-equipped mini kitchen, or if the sun gods are smiling you may choose a fresh-air feast at the barbecue/campfire area.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Bookings must not be for more than 7 consecutive nights.

    Cosy hut, great location, reasonably priced, friendly hosts, everything you need for a comfortable break in the woods away from it all. Lovely and warm with heater on in the evening, great looking out of the huge windows into the forest, lovely sitting out on the decking in the sunshine, and having a fire on the chimineer. Would definitely reccommend.

    Everything, Fantastic value, the cabins are fully fitted with everything you need, cosy and excellently catered for. Fantastic operation. Owners were really friendly and very welcoming. Loved the natural down to earth experience even the free range chickens roaming everyday, nice touch. The cabins are very well made and put together, spaceous plus very much above average compared to others available. Cant recommend enough, we have already decided to return next year and also told our friends that have also decided to book up.
    Thank you for an excellent stay and location.

    The cosiness of the lodges along with how quiet the surrounds were. Some great walks nearby in the Forestry Commission that was about 4 miles away.

    The only thing they were missing was a hot tub but then that wouldn't be in keeping with the environmentally friendly theme! A great stay

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Grab your binoculars before you set out on the five-minute drive to Glen Affric nature reserve: this rare ancient pine forest is home to all sorts of beasts, including red deer, otters, red squirrels and the odd golden eagle. If your legs long for more once you’ve taken a gentle stroll around here, take your boots or bikes out on to the 44-mile Affric Kintail Way, which passes by the site's entrance on its way from Loch Ness to Loch Duich.

Keep the active times coming with canoe trips from Cabrich (half an hour’s drive), a round at Aigas Golf (20 minutes), saddling up for a day on horseback (20 minutes) or clambering up a few of the local munroes. If you need a hand, the site owners can point you towards places to organise bike hire, hook up with hiking guides or find fishing outings.

Make sure to leave time for Loch Ness, too – Drumnadrochit, 20 minutes away on the lake’s shore, is a fine place for a boat cruise and a wander around Urquhart Castle, and you can take in waterfall walks at Divach Falls (25 minutes) and Invermoriston (40 minutes).

Must see

  • The Official Loch Ness Monster Exhibition (10.7 miles)
  • Urquhart Castle (11.6 miles)
  • Caledonian Canal Heritage Centre (14.2 miles)

Find local routes on the National Cycle Network - over 12,000 miles of cycling routes.
