An unusual small estate on the edge of the Highlands with beavers


Check Availability for the Hideaway

The Hideaway, on a lovely woodland footpath on the Cateran trail, overlooking two beaver ponds and one beaver dam, is a little bit like a wildlife watching hide, but it is also a romantic off-grid glamping hut of great charm.  It is a place for people who like to be quiet and watch wildlife – we ask our guests to be especially quiet around the pools from 7 pm when beavers and beaver watchers are about.
It has a four poster bed, built from beaver cut wood, and a wood burning stove,
two armchairs and a coffee table. There is also a table where you can boil a kettle or cook
something up on a camping gas stove.

It is fully equipped with bed linen, towels, crockery, cutlery, candles, etc and an initial basket of logs.

The Hideaway  has its own off-grid shower and composting toilet in the woods behind. Fairy lights and lamps, a USB point to recharge your phone, and the shower are powered by a solar panel on the roof and a car battery ensures electricity all year round.  Water for the shower is supplied from a rain water barrel from the roof.

A z-bed can be made up on request for a small extra charge (or used with own bedding free).  There is also a hammock which might be an option for a child, but the maximum number of people allowed is 4 of which at least 2 are children. It is a small space.


With such proximity to the beavers habitat at the front and a wood full of red squirrels behind, the Hideaway is ideal for lovers of quiet places and wildlife.

1 basket of fire-wood is supplied  and extras are for sale at £5 a bag.

The Hideaway guests may make use of the Yurt Facilities if needed, including a shower and room with wifi and tourist information.

If you are not arriving on foot or by bike you can park your car nearby.

The yurts are on the Cateran Trail so you can set off for a day’s walk in either direction. We can also arrange transport to and from any other sections of the trail.
