The Shepherds Hut
This is a great space for a romantic get away, inside you will find a spacious shower, loo and a rock basin. The living area has a well equipped kitchenette, antique French log burner, sheepskin armchairs, drop down table and a large king size bed at one end, framed in fabulous wavy edged beech felled in the Highlands. It measures 7.5 x 2.4m which gives an amazing spacious feel, yet remains incredibly cosy. Outside on the deck you will find a hot tub and a breakfast bar with views over the burn and woodlands.
About the Shepherd's Hut
This hut was handmade by a very creative and resourceful father and son team, they started with an old army trailer for the chassis, Alison supplied the Western Red cedar from Canada and they used all sorts of bits and bobs from their antiques and salvage yard to give it that wonderful quirky character. The sandstone hearth was reclaimed from a two hundred year old property, a gorgeous bit of gnarly elm was used for the log rack, vintage carpenters' planes for shelf brackets, an old copper pot for the kitchen sink and Victorian stained glass window and a large old wooden lock used on the stable door.
Outside the large raised deck provides a lovely view over the burn which runs down into Loch Garry just 100m away. The deck hosts a table, chairs and the wooden hot tub, heated with a log-burner. You’ll also find fleecy blankets inside if you fancy sitting outside in the evenings. There are also two canoes, two paddle boards and a rowing boat, all of which you may use during your stay.
