Silver Birch Lodge is a unique contemporary property situated not far from the City of Inverness. At the end of a private drive and  nestled in a woodland setting this striking property has been built from untreated  larch. Architecturally designed to ensure a carbon neutral build the property utilises the latest green technology including solar panels and a ground source heat pump.

As you would expect the interior is just as unique, bespoke hand crafted furniture from locally sourced elm blending with the contemporary oak furniture and solid oak kitchen. Technology wise this property has it all, under floor heating, Flat Screen HD TV, Blu-Ray DVD, wifi internet access, DAB radio and a multi room sound system. A particular unusual feature being the stunning round whirpool bath located in a room of its own just off the stairs.  

The downstairs layout of the property consists of a spacious lounge complete with a wood burner, a striking feature of this room is the floor to ceiling windows that offer direct access to the decked area overlooking the lochan below. The lounge is furnished with comfortable sofas and also benefits from having a dining area, at the other end the kitchen is equipped with top quality appliances. A bathroom completes the downstairs facilities. Natural flooring is used throughout this level with slate in the hall and the kitchen, and all the other floorings being oak.   

From the hall an oak and glass staircase leads to the mezzanine area with the whirlpool bathroom. On the top level a minstrel balcony enjoys views to the hall below and offers access to the bedrooms. Both bedrooms, the master and a twin, are beautifully furnished with hand crafted beds and furniture. The master complete with a king size bed benefits from having an outside covered balcony area with seating. Both bedrooms are light and airy and have high ceilings which add to the ambiance of this unique property. A shower room completes the facilities on this level. All floors are laid in oak and benefit from under floor heating.

Outside there are plenty of places to sit and relax and enjoy the views across the farmland and further afield to the Moray Firth. The neighbouring Birch wood is full of wildlife and the lochan below is home to an abundance of bird life. A hide allows you to watch the activity without disturbance.      

The location of the property makes an ideal place for a weekend or mid week break, Inverness Airport is located just a short drive away and Easyjet and FlyBe offer frequent connections to many of the other cities in the UK. The City of Inverness offers a vast array of entertainment including top quality restaurants, particular popular ones being Rocpool Restaurant and The Kitchen both situated by the river in the city centre.

Couldn't fault it. Great location, feels like you are in the middle of nowhere yet you are only 10 mins from the airport and v short drive to the local village. Wonderful views. Great lodge and the added bonus of walking in to a generous welcome pack, meant we arrived and were able to relax immediately. Can't wait to return.

We had an excellent stay at Silver Birch Lodge for Hogmanay 2013-2014. The lodge is well appointed with lovely views and is wonderfully secluded without being too remote. Inside it is beautifully clean and we especially enjoyed the finishing touches of solid fuel burner, surround sound throughout and whirlpool bath. The owners had decorated the lodge for Christmas and thoughtfully left a few welcoming gifts for us. We loved our stay and would seriously consider returning in the future.
