The property

Otter Lodge is a secluded log cabin tucked away in Blackmuir Wood in the Scottish Highlands spa village of Strathpeffer.

Providing welcoming accommodation, use this as a peaceful countryside getaway with your friends or family.

Step up into the property and feel instantly refreshed with the wood-clad walls giving a rustic feel, and a lovely family bathroom rests to your left.

The two bedrooms sit on one side of the hallway; a double and a twin are thoughtfully designed to make you feel at home whilst you get your much-deserved rest.

The accommodation is complete with a welcoming open-plan living area which hosts a snug sitting area with a TV, a well-equipped kitchen to prepare those delicious meals and a pleasant dining table to enjoy them at.

Make the most of this tranquil, secluded location by taking a seat on the decked veranda with a refreshing drink and taking in the lovely views.

Alternatively, enjoy a stroll through Blackmuir Forest which is a fine place for spotting birds and squirrels.

The village of Strathpeffer comes with a café and a restaurant, as well as the interesting Pump Room and the Highland Museum of Childhood.

For a wider variety of amenities, Dingwall is just five miles away, also home to a museum.

Further afield, the magnificent city of Inverness is a must-visit, showcasing striking architecture, high-quality amenities and a picturesque red sandstone castle.

Otter Lodge provides pleasant accommodation in a perfectly secluded location.

About the location


Inverness 20 miles.

Often compared to a Bavarian Mountain resort, the picturesque spa village of Strathpeffer owes its growth to the discovery of water springs during the 1700s, and was declared in 1819 to be the healthiest drinking water in Britain! The original Spa Pavilion has been magnificently restored after a period of disuse and now serves as a venue for a variety of events, including concerts, dances, dramas and exhibitions. The former Victorian railway station, which in times past brought many visitors from near and far, has now been beautifully restored to house craft workers and their shops, and is also home to the Highland Museum of Childhood. Visit the restored Pump house (also a Tourist Information point), take a walk along a forest track, or enjoy the views from the nearby pictish hill fort at Knockfarrel. Whatever you decide there's plenty on offer for all the family.
