Disconnect from technology, unwind in nature and reconnect with yourself in a Highland Fairytale.
Arnor is an off grid cabin that sleeps 2 in a kingsize bed with memory foam mattress. It has a chemical toilet, premier size shower, cold water on tap with kettle and camp stove for heating it. It is well equipped with pans, crockery and cutlery to make small or light meals. Towels, bedding, sheets, extra blanket and hot water bottle are all provided along with a small gas fire for winter mornings.
Situated on the edge of a clearing in 130yr old Caledonian Pine Wood, it shows an ancient and almost extinct landscape that reveals how Scotland would have looked 400 years ago. It is abundant with wildlife, and perfect for watching moonrises and Northern Lights or stars.
The other side of the hut borders our croft land where free range chickens, pigs, and horses graze and play. You can visit the animals and see how a modern croft operates without machinery.
Arnor has been lovingly created using reclaimed and recycled materials to give you a most authentic hutting experience; an aspect of our Highland heritage all but lost.
It sits perfectly in its environment and offers great privacy without being awkwardly cut off from the world.
The track into Arnor is approximately 250m from where you can park, and half of that is the main single track road. The rest is very uneven so sensible footwear is a must, it can be very soft on wet days. You will need to be able to carry all of your own luggage into the woods, but if it is very heavy it is possible to drop off and shorten the distance.
Because the area is home to many rare orchids we respectfully ask that guests do not stray from the outlined path and potentially damage the fragility of the flora. Instead the raised decking offers a great view to see everything in the woods. The area of the woods near the Prancing Pony Pod is different as it is conservation grazed and you are free to walk around it.
It is quite important that you can arrive at a time when we can check you in and show you to Arnor and round it, so we do need check in to be before 8pm, excepting delays.
Apart from this we expect that our guests are booking us for the privacy so we won’t be making any unexpected appearances unless it’s urgent. When you check out we would love it if you can come and see us before you go, and if you ever need anything at all – phones/devices charged, use of wifi from reception, fresh eggs, trip advice or piglet cuddles, there is usually always someone around to help you.
Opening Hours: March to October
