The Chalet - your private woodland retreat

BETULA, from Latin betula =  birch tree

​The Chalet is situated on 5 acres of private land and sleeps 4, children and pets welcome! The property offers a living/dining room with a fantastic panoramic window allowing you to connect and enjoy the various wildlife species such as deer, various birds and pheasants or an occasional fox.

There is a fully fitted kitchen including dishwasher, fridge/freezer and electric hub/oven. You will find a kettle, toaster, microwave and kitchen essentials.

There is also a spacious bathroom with bathtub/shower to help you relax and unwind after a days exploring. On the ground floor is a bedroom with 2 single beds with 2 more single beds located on the upstairs mezzanine floor. Alternatively, the latter 2 beds can be 1 super-king size bed using a mattress bridge and strap, toped with a super-king size protector and sheet. The 2 single duvets remain.

The heating system is electric and can be managed by our guests to ensures a cosy and comfortable stay all year round. The kitchen and bathroom feature underfloor heating.

Through the patio door you can access the large decking area. There you find a picnic table for alfresco dinning. There is a bench and sunlounges available too. At the back of the property there is a private fire-pit area with benches where you can enjoy the sunset or stars above you, all surrounded by woodland. The fire-pit also functions as a BBQ.

Please note that the chalet does not offer a TV nor a washing machine. However, the free WiFi allows for streaming and there are washing self-service- and launderette facilities in Nairn. There are several EV charging points within a few mile radius e.g. Nairn central Car Park, Logie Steading.

​The chalet provides an excellent base for exploring the Northeast of Scotland, namely the Cairngorm National Park, Speyside, the Highlands and Moray Coast.
