Cosy and beautiful location
My girlfriend and I spent four nights in the Hazel Geodome. It was surprisingly spacious and had everything we needed. Beautiful views, beach is just two minutes from the site, and you can hear the waves from in the Geodome!

Beautiful and quirky setting and accommodation
We stayed in the Holly Yurt which has beautiful views over the water, but a steep walk up to the shower block! The toilets and showers were absolutely spotless, as was the yurt on arrival. You also get your own bathroom shared with just one or two other yurts.

They supply you with everything you need for a comfortable few days, just add your own food and drink. The staff are really friendly and welcoming and several on site dogs are a huge bonus!

The nearby cliff path walk down to the beach is challenging but well worth it and the site is in a decent location for exploring the beautiful nearby towns and the rest of the Black Isle. We also took a day trip to Inverness and Loch Ness so location is great.

Some of the most beautiful scenery ever seen
These yurts were wonderful set in some beautiful scenery on the Black Isle looking out across the sea to chanonary point where you can see dolphins swim. The terrain is steep so take some good walking shoes and above all enjoy the peace and tranquility of the site,

Beds were so comfy best sleep I’d ever had on a bed they were warm at night as the temp can drop but you just don’t notice it. the lovely freshly washed duvet and pillows really made you feel at home. Everything you need For a good stay

Be careful of the road into the site if you have a low slung car it can be a bit scary and rip pieces off I had a standard saloon and it did bottom out a few times but take your time as it’s worth it.

The owners were wonderfully approachable and they had prepared the site to accept families with cleaning and hand sanitising in place to ensure you could maintain your distance. If your visiting the Black Isle and you want a beautiful setting this is one of the ones you should consider

Perfect getaway
After months within our own 4 walls, this was a perfect getaway. The yurt is beautiful and the location is idyllic.

The yurts are hand made by Jenny and Kenneth (the owners who also run the farm), with very comfortable beds, and immaculate presentation. The shower block was impeccable.

We were able to see dolphins from the hub, although binoculars were helpful, and the birch Forrest is very calm, and well spaced out. There is a good space between the yurts, although that does mean a decent walk for some.

There is a steep walk down to the beach, which the kids loved, and you can walk to Rosemarkie at low tide. At Rosemarkie point, we had a wonderful show by the dolphins, which must have been playing for the best part of an hour, and only about 20m from where we were standing.

The owners sell their (and some neighbours) meat, which made for a wonderful bbq.

The weather was typically Scottish, but that didn’t matter, as there was plenty of space inside the yurts when it rained.

Highly recommended!

Myself and a friends stayed at BIY for the last weekend in September. We stayed in Holly hurt and the yurt was all set up for us when we arrived from wood for the wood burner and a towel on the bed.

The view from the yurt was beautiful. It was a bit of a walk up hill but it was not an inconvenience at all.

Kenneth and Jenny were brilliant and welcoming and always on hand if we needed something.

There are plenty of things to do around the area but I would definitely recommend walking around the site and taking the walk down the cliff to the beach.

I would 100% be returning again.

Yurt's so good...
A lovely setup on a hillside overlooking the Moray Firth (the sea). The yurts themselves are handmade by one of the owners and all the amenities are there. We especially appreciated that there has been no skimping on the beds -- ours was really luxurious.

The site is criss-crossed by trails, including one that leads down to the sea. The walk along the seashore is highly recommended, and at low to mid tide, you can walk for miles up or down the coast.

Cosy and peaceful
BIY is a fantastic place, situated on a wonderful piece of land on the hillside overlooking the beach. It’s great fun for kids, dogs and adults alike, adventuring down the cliff path and exploring the crags and caves along the shoreline.
The yurts (we stayed in Rowan) are comfortable and cosy with just the right level of amenities. The Hub is a brilliant bathroom, washing and WIFI/charging facilities with amazing views over the firth.
The local area has great walking and biking trails, and there are even dolphins visible from the beach at Rosemarkie or the point at Fortrose.
We had a great week at BIY and were made to feel very welcome and comfortable. We will be back!

Short break
Well, what can I say. We arrived on Friday afternoon 3rd of May the weather was wintery, to say the least. We were shown to our Yurt by Jenny a warm friendly woman. The Yurt was spacious with a very comfy bed. There is a cooker and cool box and plenty of cutlery. A basket full off logs to keep the stove going. Although it was snowing outside we were as warm as toast. The toilet block is very clean and tidy. All in all an amazing place to stay. Ps little tip if you don't want run to the loos at night bring a bucket

Black Isle Yurts are close to the beautiful, historic villages of Cromarty, Fortrose and Rosemarkie, only 30 mins drive from of Inverness. It's a prefect location for glamping in the Scottish Highlands. Here you’ll get close to nature in an area of great bio-diversity. There are spectacular cliff top views, as well as direct access to a dramatic coastline dotted with caves and secluded sandy beaches.

Although the Black Isle is not really an island, there is plenty of coast to explore, and the region’s most residents, its bottlenose dolphins, can be seen frolicking in the Moray Firth and at nearby Chanonry Point.


As a family, have been fortunate enough to have lived on the unique Black Isle for over 20 years. In 2014 we bought Easter Hillockhead, a small working farm, which we believed had great potential for agri-tourism. So with Jenny’s background in both farming and yurt making the idea of Black Isle Yurts was born.

Each Yurt is unique. Lovingly hand built and individually decorated and furnished for a comfortable, relaxing break So whether its a few days or a few weeks.
