Where you'll stay
Rustic, quiet glamping experience, campfire & wood burner. Each of the two hand-built shepherd’s huts are located in a tranquil and private setting and have a comfortable sprung full-size double bed complete with hypoallergenic pillows and duvet covered in cosy brushed cotton linen. Inside is a small wood burner, dresser, double ring gas cooking hob, plates, cutlery, pots and pans to provide a wonderful self-contained retreat. Outside log seating and heavy-duty steel campfire with bbq skillet make for an authentic glamping experience. Low voltage solar lighting makes this a truly off-grid low carbon holiday.
The Shepherd’s huts are hand-built in traditional style and fitted out with tastefully selected shabby chic interiors. Each one is positioned with both visual and noise privacy affording a truly wild experience. Inside for comfort. Outside for wilderness. Stable doors allow the outside in so you can enjoy the quiet sounds of resident wildlife or changing light in the forest fading to a brilliant dark sky of glittering stars.
What you'll do
Located 8 miles from the nearest town, Forres, you’ll be able to truly immerse yourself in the wilderness of the Scottish Highlands, and enjoy a short break in the outdoors that really helps you get away from it all.
The location as a whole is also a lesser-known destination but is quickly gaining popularity, thanks to its proximity to the mighty Cairngorm Mountains and the award-winning coastline of beautiful beaches, and the number of outdoor activities the region offers.
For the two nights that you are staying, you’ll be able to enjoy a rustic glamping experience in a hand-built shepherds hut, barbecuing and cooking outside, spending evenings by the crackling campfire under a sky of stars after a day of exploring the landscape.
On your full day in the highlands, you’ll set out on the best year-round white water rafting experience in the UK on the beautiful River Findhorn, one of the last untouched rivers in the country. This experience, led by local expert guides and instructors, is combined with optional cliff jumping up to 30 feet, making it a truly exciting day out for an active couple.
The variation of the breath-taking landscapes you’ll be immersed in makes this experience truly unique, as your adventure flows through Scottish woodland, traditional farmland, dramatic towering gorges and rushing waterfalls, sweet-scented pine forests and windswept fells and mountains.
Spot red or roe deer, ospreys, buzzards and falcons, salmon and otters, grouse, pine marten and so much more in this absolute haven of wildlife as you explore the outdoors, then retreat to your cosy cabin, light the barbeque and the campfire, open a couple of beers and bask in the great outdoors.
