All our yurts are individually hand crafted, meaning each is unique
EXPLORE OUR YURTS
Our hand-built yurts are based on traditional designs from Central Asia, where the sturdy structures have been used for thousands of years by nomadic people. We have changed the traditional felt outer shell to a more durable waterproof canvas to take account of Scotland’s climate, but they retain their snug and cosy feel, especially when the wood burning stove is lit. All our yurts also have windows to allow you to enjoy the natural light and the beautiful surroundings.
As each yurt is individually finished, furnished, they are all truly unique.
Yurts available for rental in 2019 include: Holly, Aspen, Rowan, Willow, Juniper, Cherry and the Hazel Geodome.
Another new yurt will be added over the course of the 2019 season.
185 metres to Hub
Juniper Yurt was also added at the start of 2016. Like Holly it is quite a steep walk down to this yurt, but we think it is well worth it! At almost 18ft across it feels particularly spacious and is the closest yurt to the beach path.
220 metres to hub
Holly Yurt is 15ft in diameter and is sited below the Hub so it is a short walk (uphill!) to access the WC and Showers. However, Holly has an exceptional view over the Moray Firth and is the dedicated ‘dog-free’ yurt, sleeping up to 3 adults.
125 metres to Hub
OK, so as a geodome, Hazel in not actually a yurt. At 14ft across it is our smallest tent, and is structurally quite different from the yurts, being a fairly modern invention! Hazel has just one double bed but has the same facilties and wood burning stove as all our yurts. Hazel has benefitted from 2 new windows in 2017 – so it is brighter and more open feeling.
150 metres to Hub
Built in in 2017, Cherry is our newest yurt, and boasts an excellent view across to Fort George and Chanonry Point. It is designed for up to 4 guests and is situated between Juniper and Holly Yurts, just below the Hub.
250 metres to Hub
Willow Yurt was added at the start of our 2016 season. At twenty feet across, it is by far our biggest to date, and with one double and up to three single beds it accommodates up to five guests. It is the furthest situated yurt from the Hub, at around 250 metres. But is has the benefit of a composting toilet situated nearby.
130 meters to Hub
Rowan Yurt sleeps up to 4 guests, is also 16ft across and at 130 metres it is a little further from the Hub than Aspen. It has it’s own picnic bench and affords an excellent level of privacy and tranquility.
70 meters to Hub
Aspen is 16ft in diameter and is our closest yurt to the Hub. This makes it ideal for those who would prefer to be near to the WC and shower facilities. It is spacious and airy, and comfortably sleeps up to 4 people.
"We had a wonderful stay. We found our yurt comfortable and the lovely wood stove kept off the November chill. A gas stove was convenient for making tea and there's a very comfortable shower in the heated "Hub". ”
DAVID, ALICE & MATT : November 15
Each yurt is fully furnished and equipped, to ensure your stay is comfortable and enjoyable:
A wood burning stove and a basket of firewood
Comfy beds, duvets, pillows, bed linen and towels
Table and chairs
Two hob gas cooker/grill with pots, pans and a kettle
Cutlery and crockery
A lockable door
An outdoor seating area (picnic bench or similar)
As the yurts are off-grid, they are free from mains power and water supply. Instead, we provide solar/hand powered lighting units and a refillable container of fresh water.
Due to popular demand, we are planning new composting toilets to be sited at near to the yurts furthest from the Hub. One is already in place near “Willow”. These are for our guests’ convenience and to provide an alternative to our our other bathroom and toilet facilities at the Hub in times of high demand.
