Accommodation & Food
You will be staying in one of several carefully selected Scottish lodges. For holidays in April, May and June 2019 the lodge we have chosen is An Teallach. This is a superb property in the beautiful forest village of Nethy Bridge, some eight miles north east of Aviemore in the Cairngorms National Park.
The house has been renovated to a very high standard and is warm and welcoming with 5 bedroom and 4 bathrooms and is suitable for up to 8 guests. It is situated just a 10 minute walk from the centre of the village of Nethy Bridge in the Abernethy forest. It is surrounded by natural Caledonian Forest which forms part of the RSPB Loch Garten nature reserve, which is where the first pair of Ospreys returned to Scotland successfully bred.
The quiet woodland location means that An Teallach gets regular visits from local wildlife in the area including red deer, squirrels, pheasants, pine martens and a wide range of birds species including woodpeckers, owls, crested tits and treecreepers.
In the area around An Teallach are many walking trails and in the village of Nethy Bridge there is a post office, hotel and bar, cash machine and local convenience shop.
An Teallach itself is very spacious, with high ceilings and lots of natural light and it also benefits from an extensive private garden in which the group can gather.
Facilities include: plentiful parking, free Wi-Fi, a washer, dryer and ironing board and hair dryers in bedrooms.
Please note there is no smoking in the house.
