This luxurious 6-person cabin utilizes authentic Canadian craftsmanship to create a truly unique and stunning structure in one of the most beautiful natural settings the UK has to offer. Idyllically nestled in the Scottish Highlands, this magical family retreat sits only 50m from the shores of Loch Garry surrounded by ancient mountains, lochs and mystical moorland; perfectly illustrating the region's natural rugged beauty.
Inverness airport is only an hour away, but here you will find a location to truly escape. Handcrafted using traditional Canadian methods, the giant Western Red Cedar log construction sits beautifully amongst several acres of secluded woodland with a picturesque burn trickling by and the spectacular Loch Garry located just through the trees. This divine paradise is the perfect place to unwind with friends and family and enjoy life's simple pleasures.
The cabin itself offers luxury on every level with each detail carefully thought out. The interior is elegantly styled with luxurious furnishings and plenty of rugs, throws and furs to keep you lovely and toasty. Mingle in the magnificent communal spaces with family and friends or snuggle into one of the many cosy corners around the intelligently designed space.
Explore the Loch in the canoes, paddle boards or rowing boat, or simply saunter along the numerous paths and trails and indulge in the breath-taking natural surrounds. In colder climes, cosy up around the log burner with a mulled wine in hand, or soak away your stresses and strains in the sumptuous hot tub on the wooden deck. Whatever the season this really is a holiday destination to savour.

Please Note: The cabin is now fitted with a smart lock and you will be sent an invite to download the app and receive your key which is valid just for the duration of your stay.
The nearest village shop is a 20-minute drive to Fort Augustus, which stocks a good range of produce, but we recommend a stop in Inverness or Fort William to buy the bulk of your provisions en-route. If you fly to Inverness, you will pass a large Tesco on the A96 en-route, which is open 24 hours a day, every day (even all-night Sunday). Asda is the only online supermarket that will deliver to the cabin.
Guests are encouraged to leave any non-perishable items, so there are few essentials available for the next guests. Please, be kind enough to replace any everyday items you finish off during your stay.
The cabin has a tall fridge freezer to provide plenty of storage space for food during your stay.
You will find the basics of salt, pepper, cooking oil, dishcloths, washing-up liquid, soap powder, tea, coffee and sugar and there are usually items such as tin foil, cling film and bin bags in the drawers.
Guests are free to use the picnic basket and rug for days out, as well as the gas BBQ, pizza oven smoker or fire pit with grill, for alfresco cooking and dining, we just request that you clean them after use.
The cabin benefits from the latest innovations in sustainable energy. Underfloor heating is powered by an air source heat pump, which also provides the hot water. A log burner in the lounge provides warmth in even the coldest temperatures and gives a super-cosy atmosphere.
As the cabin is situated in such a remote location, there are no mains water supply, so rainwater is harvested off the slate roof. The water is stored safely underground in a 15,000-litre capacity tank and then pumped into the cabin on demand via several filters. The result is some of the purest water you will ever find, which has a refreshingly wonderful taste. Hot water is heated and stored in a 300-litre tank.
There are 10 sacks of logs on the back porch, they are £7 each for any used or part used nets, but we do supply a welcome basket FOC. We will supply enough kindling for your stay FOC but if you need more you are also most welcome to forage for sticks and twigs in the grounds, bring some, or the local garages stock kindling too.
The mystical Scottish Highlands is an area of enchanting beauty and magnificent natural splendour, with Caledonian Cabin sitting enviably only 50m from the shores of Loch Garry. Guests are spoilt for choice with a plethora of mountains, moorland and ancient waterways to discover.
Explore the primaeval Loch for pristine waters and mesmerizing views. Walk along the burn that trickles past the cabin and find a wonderful Sir Thomas Telford bridge, giving access to yet more picturesque woodland and shoreline.
There are a variety of restaurants locally, which all serve reasonable meals, although eating in and enjoying the cabin is probably the best option.
The cabin is gloriously remote, with the nearest village shop located 20 minutes away in Fort Augustus, so be sure to stock up on food and essentials when you get the opportunity.
We are sure you'll enjoy every minute of your stay here in this magical setting and leave feeling relaxed, refreshed and ready to plan your next Highland escape!
