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.

    Wonderful peaceful stay. Very clean facilities and kitchen well stocked. Surrounded by woodland, we would definitely stay again. It was compact for the 3 of us but we have a man size teenager.
    The local pub served lovely food, which is a short walk away.
    Dog friendly too, which is a plus for us.

    Disliked: 

    Sofa bed not very comfortable to sleep on for a larger child.

From the manager...

Thank you very much for your review. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay in the hut. Thank you for your feedback on the sofa bed- we will look to get a mattress topper to make it more comfortable for a lager teenager!

    We loved pretty much everything. The owners where lovely and very helpful while giving us enough space for it to feel private. The accommodation itself was very cozy and surprisingly modern inside, inside it was much larger than what we had been expecting having looked at the images. The surrounding area is stunning, especially Ploda Falls. All in we didn't want to leave and have been recommending it to everyone who asks! Our only disappointment was that it was cloudy the nights we stayed so we never got to see the stars, maybe next time though ^_^

Thank you very much! We're delighted you enjoyed your stay. (It gets dark very late here at this time of year for staying up to see the stars- the autumn and winter night skies are stunning when clear!! )

    De goede ontvangst. Meteen thuisvoelen in een comfortabele blokhut.
    Supermarkt in de buurt. Midden in de natuur. Prachtige rustige omgeving.

    Disliked: 

    De douche werkte op een kleine geiser, waardoor deze niet heel warm werd.
    Maar dat sluit aan bij een energiebewuste hut op biologische basis.

Thank you for your review. We are pleased to have exceeded expectations! We have now fitted new pressure regulators to the showers in the huts to improve their performance and increase water temperature.

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)
