A cosy yet spacious log cabin, privately situated in a pretty woodland setting, on the outskirts of the spa town of Strathpeffer in the wonderful Scottish Highlands.
This charming log cabin is one of a few similar cottages occupying this tranquil location, an ideal base for small groups of family or friends who will appreciate the history of the village, and the beauty of the surrounding countryside.
This ground floor Highland cottage has two neat bedrooms and a family bathroom, and the bright and airy open plan living area has a well-equipped kitchen, comfortable settees, and French doors leading to a large private balcony, a simply perfect place for a quiet read and a glass of wine.
The surrounding Blackmuir Wood is ideal for gentle walks and offers lovely westerly mountain views, with links to other well-signposted walks around the town.
Strathpeffer also boasts excellent cycle paths, and the chance to hire bikes in the village if required!
The area is rich in wildlife and close by you will find the RSPB Tollie Red Kites nature reserve, where red kites can be viewed from a specially-converted farmstead building.
Strathpeffer is ideally placed for touring the wider area of the Northern Highlands, and Loch Ness, the Isle of Skye, and the Cairngorm National Park can be accessed quite easily.
However, during the summer months ensure you are back in time to hear the District Pipe Band and Highland dancers performing for visitors on Saturday evenings, a truly wonderful experience!
After a day exploring this wonderful, unspoilt region, this Strathpeffer log cabin is the perfect Highland holiday home to return to.

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.
