Eco Camping Pods

Warm and cosy whatever the weather and open all year.

 

We have two wooden, eco pods situated to take advantage of stunning and uninterupted views over Loch Craskie. Excellent insulation and a low wattage, high output heater make them warm and dry all year round and of course they are both dog friendly. Our pods are positioned to ensure that they cannot be seen from our holiday cottage. 

Each spacious pod comfortably sleeps up to four people with a double and two single beds. These are topped with comfy 4 inch thick matresses and optional bed linen (just bring your own sleeping bags if you prefer). A built in wardrobe with space for shoes separates the two singles.

Suprisingly well equipped, they have full electrics, USB sockets for charging your phone and we have provided a set of speakers so you can play your favourite music. There is a kettle, microwave, camping stove and generously sized Weber BBQ for cooking with crockery and cutlery supplied.

Each pod has its own large, decked terrace with ample space for cooking, alfresco dining or soaking up the stunning loch views. Your own area to enjoy the beauty and tranquillity of this unique highland estate.

Shared, heated bathroom facilities are located only a short distance from the pods in an annex of the main house. New for 2017 we have fitted additional, luxury shower/toilet facilities (no damp campsite toilet blocks here!) and a sink area for washing dishes. There is also a shared fridge and space to hang wet walking gear. An outside tap provides fresh drinking water drawn from our borehole.

We have carefully balanced ecologically sound principles with luxury touches in the creation of our pod accommodation. They are designed to sit comfortably within their unspoilt and wild surroundings with a minimal carbon footprint. This is achieved using highly thermally efficient insulation, double glazing, low wattage electrics, energy efficient radiators and by positioning the pods to maximise the sun's energy.

They are constructed in the UK using recycled and responsibly sourced materials and all timber is sustainably sourced and FSC certified. We have tried to use recycled and re-purposed items within the pods wherever possible, for example the coasters are hand-made from reclaimed Ballachulish slate found on the estate and some of the furniture was sourced by our antique dealer friend. We equip each pod to allow you to recycle as much as possible; paper, card, plastics, tins, glass and food waste which goes to our chickens!

There is parking on site but we ask our guests to only bring one car wherever possible. Go one better and cycle or hike into Craskie, we are located less than two miles from the Affric-Kintail Way.

A stay in our luxurious eco pods starts from just £50 per night for four people with no minimum stay. See our rates page for further details.
