The groups-only bunkhouse sleeping 8 people is set in the fields of a working farm overlooking the beautiful river Spey valley in the Cairngorms National Park. It is easily accessible by road or rail on the Inverness routes.The family room sleeps 4 with double bed and adult bunkbed. The woodpanelled loft above sleeps 2 singles.The separate mezzanine sleeps another 2. Fully fitted kitchen, tv lounge, free wi-fi. Bedding and towels provided. Plenty of space for hardy campers if required (but no specialised facilities).
The farm, nestling at the foot of the mountainous wilderness of the Monadhliath range, is home to a prize-winning herd of pedigree Highland Cattle (the Ubhaidh Fold). The cliffs of Creag Dhubh, the Black Mountain beloved by Clan Macpherson and rock climbers alike, form an unforgettable backdrop:pastures and wetlands slope down to the River Spey in the foreground (you can see this via the live feed from the website). It boasts the prime outdoor recreational opportunities of the Cairngorms National Park: hiking, climbing, mountain-biking just for starters. Creag Meagaidh National Nature Reserve, Laggan Wolftrax Mountain Biking Centre, the Cairngorm Funicular Railway & Ski Centre, the Abernethy Osprey Centre,and many other stunning locales are close by - Oh, and plenty of Distilleries!
The peaceful rural setting of the bunkhouse allows individuals and groups to wind down and catch up with themselves. Guests come often intending to do nothing more than put their feet up, but it can also be a stimulating environment for those wishing to work creatively. The meeting of the inspiring environment with the innovative architecture of the buildings, stitched together by means of an elevated bridge, provides food for thought and a spur to the imagination. This is a place where artist and poets, writers & storytellers can thrive. Wi-fi broadband is provided for those who want to maintain contact with home or work or simply for relaxation. Guests are free to wander the woods and pastures of the farm, and the hills rise invitingly immediately at the back of the farm where you can walk forever!
The accommodation is let only to one group at a time -ideal for sharing as a family group or friends and colleagues looking for time together. I welcome groups celebrating special events such as anniversaries, birthdays and special achievements. I also aim to assist working groups, for personal or professional development eg. in identifying locations and venues outdoors and indoors. Hosting people from Scotland and around the world is a real pleasure, so I'm glad to make you welcome and help make your stay as pleasant and productive as possible. See you soon- all the best. Roy
