Sorry no Pets

Scots Pine Lodge is a unique eco lodge built from untreated larch. The property was architecturally designed to ensure a carbon neutral built and also positioned to ensure the maximum solar gain. The property utilises the latest green technology including solar panelling and a ground source heat pump. Materials used in the build include insulation made from sheep’s wool and recycled newspapers, and reclaimed slates have been used on the roof.

The property sits in area of private woodland which has been planted and landscaped with only indigenous species including rowan and birch. A lochan built by the owners in the garden provides the heat that is drawn to the ground source heat pump, currently this is producing four times the amount of energy that is required for the lodge, therefore highly efficiency. The lochan also benefits from having its own hide where the wildlife can be watched without disturbance.

Inside the interior is just as unique, equipped and furnished to a high standard, natural materials having been used throughout including beautiful oak flooring. Bespoke hand crafted furniture from locally sourced elm sits alongside oak furniture and the oak kitchen manufactured in Scotland. Technology wise this property has it all, under floor heating, Flat Screen HD TV, Blu-Ray DVD, wifi internet access and a multi room sound system.

On the ground level the property is open plan, at one end a spacious lounge is comfortably furnished and benefits from large floor to ceiling windows which allow access to the outside decked area which overlooks the lochan.  At the other end the kitchen is equipped with top quality appliances. A bathroom completes the facilities on this level.

From the hall an oak and glass staircase leads to the mezzanine area with the whirlpool bathroom which enjoys woodland views. On the top level are the bedrooms, a master and a twin. 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.

The property would make an ideal base for a short or weekend break. Inverness Airport is located just a short drive away and offers connections to various UK cities. Location wise you could not ask for a better position, the Castle Stuart Golf Course, home to the Scottish Open, is a just a short drive away, as is the City of Inverness. That offers all the usual amenities, including an art gallery, theatre and many gourmet restaurants. The Cairngorm National Park and Aviemore with its ski slopes are within an hours’ drive, and the west coast and the Isle of Skye within a couple of hours.
