The lodges are in a superb location enabling you to go on fantastic walks right from the moment you cross your own doorstep! There are forest trails, lochside paths or more challenging walks for those feeling adventurous.

When the weather is warm and you can eat 'al fresco', as each Lodge has a patio, picnic table and BBQ and although charcoal can be purchased from various outlets in Aviemore, a lot of fun can be had from gathering fallen wood from the surrounding forest for BBQ use.

Ample parking is located adjacent to each Lodge, with additional parking nearby.

The Lodges


Covered Sports Hall: A large, floodlit area laid with special soft flooring, complete with 5-a-side nets, basketball posts and floodlights operated through £1 tokens (available from the Site Warden). Open for all to use with exclusive use for larger groups bookable at no extra charge.

BBQ Hut: Overlooking the pond and stream this open fronted, rustic stone hut has a log fire, a large BBQ and basic picnic seating. Can be used by all or booked for exclusive use by larger groups free of charge.

The Hall: A larger dining/meeting room which seats approximately 80-100 in rows theatre style or approx 80 for dining purposes - it has its own fully equipped, self catering kitchen.

Outside: There is an adventure play area, pond and stream and spacious outdoor area for family/group games.
