Siskin Cabin is listed in affiliation with Airbnb.
Spend days exploring the Scottish Highlands and retire to this marvellous rustic wooden cabin. It sits amongst the trees and has a cosy wood burner leaving guests with the simple task of sitting back with a fresh mint tea to reflect on the day.
Tucked away, in a secluded corner of the woodland garden, this is an ecological paradise for those wishing to get back-to-basics on a permaculture micro-small holding. Snug and intimate, it is ideal for romantics who want to press the pause button, turn off devices and escape the stresses of everyday life.
The cabin was designed and hand-crafted by the owners and is completely off-grid. The entrance is via a wooden ramp which take guests to a charming deck area with outdoor table and chairs. Then, through delightful patio doors, they enter the cosy room which incorporates a comfy double bed, dining and kitchen area. Ecology is at the heart of every detail of this charming property. The mattress and soft, warm duvet are made from recycled plastic bottles and the curtains from recycled wool blankets. Wooden shelves, handy for bedtime reads and morning mugs of coffee, run along the wall above the bed and a large window looks out onto the lush greenery outside.
The dining area consists of a table for two and there's a simple kitchen, where a cooler acts as the fridge. There's a gas hob though, so whipping up breakfast (perhaps with an optional hamper of homemade organic treats) and simple suppers is a breeze. In the corner of the cabin sits a wood burner keeping guests cosy on chilly evenings. A sliding door leads through to the stylish bathroom which hosts a compost toilet and bucket shower.
Siskin Cabin is situated on the spectacular Black Isle in the Scottish Highlands which has a wealth of stunning views and a rich eco-system. The area is full of hidden treasures including cycling, dolphin watching, plenty of history and wonderful woodland walks such as the magical Fairy Glen. It is close to tranquil coastal villages such as Cromarty, Avoch and Rosemarkie, where guests can pick up supplies. For food, head over to Sutors Creek at Cromarty for Scottish seafood and pizza. Or enjoy dinner and drinks at MacGregor’s or Black Isle Organic Bar in Inverness.
