Woodman’s Hut

This hut now has a small deck as an extension to the verandah, with a peat fired chimenea that can also be used for outside cooking (pictures coming soon)

Look south to the Cairngorms and at night time hear the silence. This exquisite eco-cabin just for couples offers a wildland experience blended with some quirky luxury. Wildlife photo opportunities every day.

Booking terms

Who’s it for

The Woodman’s Hut has been specially designed and set up for independent couples only.  We regret we cannot accept ‘booking out’ of multiple accommodations at The Lazy Duck, very sorry.

Kit list

You should bring in all your own food although you can ask us for home baked bread, fresh laid eggs as available and poly-tunnel salads and veg in the summer. We suggest you bring easy-to-carry baggage, not big wheelie cases, for the short woodland path leading up to the hut. Even in mid-summer it’s best to bring a good head-torch, even if you discover you don’t need it. Mostly you will find it useful for the forest path at night and perhaps for evening reading.

What’s included

We provide all linen, towels, and domestic essentials including candles and fire-lighting materials, logs for the wood-burning stove and peat for the outside fire-pot on request. Fresh drinking water is provided in water carriers which can be refilled from our mains supply. You are welcome to shared use of a small fridge/freezer that you can access at any time, 2 mins walk. We can offer you a phone charging point and an open access internet facility, both 2 mins walk. O2 and Orange mobile networks are fairly good here, others might be less so.

Fire Safety

Only candles that we provide for your use and are contained inside their candle lanterns may be lit in the hut. Open candles may not be lit anywhere and the candle lanterns may not be transferred to the ‘box bed’ space. There you will find a pleasant 12volt lantern fitted for complete night safety. This is a serious insurance issue for the use of the hut. Please also help us protect the forest & leave BBQ kits safely at home. We provide a peat fire-pot for minimalist outside cooking when weather conditions allow.

Capercaillie

We must also to ask you please to observe one unusual legal (planning) requirement. Residents in the hut must take care to draw the curtains in the two windows facing the forest between sunset and sunrise to avoid any possible light disturbance of capercaillie.

Dogs

Regrettably visiting dog/s are not possible in the hut on account of the sensitive wildlife in the vicinity. However we can personally recommend a small local kennels offering first class accommodation and individual care at a very reasonable price to enable your pet to get the benefit of the great walks here.

Cleaning and smoking

We clean thoroughly between lets, but because time is limited, we ask you please to leave the hut as clean and tidy as possible; this is always greatly appreciated.  In the event of damage, or of your accommodation requiring much more than the usual time we allocate for cleaning following your visit, we have to reserve the right to make a surcharge to cover extra costs. And be assured, Lazy Duck, including The Woodman’s Hut, is a non-smoking environment, including out-of-doors and including e-cigarettes.
