    We had a lovely time staying here this weekend. We stayed in the lambing bothy - it was charming, cosy and very quiet and had everything we needed. Loved the outside shower even though it was a very chilly weekend! Very refreshing! I have to...More

    Hi Julie Thanks for your wonderful words! We are delighted that you had such a tranquil stay, and so pleased that you loved the hot water outdoor shower. Thanks for your feedback on late check out, too. We do often get asked about this, and...More

    A lovely welcome by owner and staff. The accommodation is very personal and quirky. Not quite sure how the building has passed fire regulations. Fantastic views towards the Cairngorms, peaceful location. We had a great weekend in a fabulous environmentMore

    Had the most amazing experience and wonderful stay at the Woodman's Hut hidden away in the woods at the Lazy Duck. I honestly never wanted to leave this place, it was just magical. We spent the evenings sitting cosy with the woodburner on, stargazing through...More

    I camped here for two nights in the middle of September on the way home from visiting friends. The small size of the campsite appealed to me as I was on my own, but there were other lovely touches, such as the camper's retreat, with...More

    Thanks for your lovely observations and for telling everyone that the Lazy Duck is a safe and welcoming place. Yes, the loo/sink is a wee bit on the small side we agree. Difficult though to know how to better it in the space available. For...More

    If I could give more than a 5, I would. 2 nights in the Woodman's Hut surpassed all our expectations. A thoroughly relaxing time off the grid doing absolutely nothing. The bush shower, peat BBQ, wood fired hot tub, the (albeit quite soft) box bed...More
