A small, perfectly-formed retreat with big mountain views - and a wood-fired outdoor bathtub to enjoy them from! - gloriously positioned in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park.
  • Sleeps: 2-4
  • Bedroom: 1
  • Bathroom: 1
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights

Filled with lovingly hand-crafted elements, Tiny House is superbly positioned in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park, so you can savour Scottish nature at its finest.

Bespoke-crafted from sustainable and recycled materials, the house is beautifully secluded among sweet-scented native wildflowers (visit in spring to see them in full bloom!) with rolling hill-and-mountain views as far as the eye can see.

Step inside to be greeted by a true home-from-home, with vintage-style blinds at the windows, and soft, cushion-covered seating to help you catch up with your loved ones in comfort. Simply fire up the wood-burner to make your evenings feel ridiculously cosy.

Finely crafted with love and care, the wooden interiors have been expertly constructed to maximise space, with plenty of handy shelves, a clever fold-out dining table, and a handmade pull-out double bed.

There’s a kingsize loft bed just up the ladder, too, with a stargazing skylight above, and a picture window opposite, showcasing the most incredible morning views.

If the sun is shining, there’s plenty of room to relax outside on the deck, shooting the breeze over epic mountain views and a wee dram (or two!) Linger outside as the sun sets and the stars come out to play… with a dreamy wood-fired bathtub to keep you warm, there’s no need to head back inside until you want to.

Early riser? There’s nothing like firing up the sleek coffee machine first-thing, then wandering back outside to watch the sun rise over the mountains. Along with the birds’ joyful morning chorus, on a peaceful morning you might even hear the nearby river flowing in the distance.
