The Lazy Duck, Nethy Bridge: The Duck's Nest

This latest 2-person lodge is much in the style of the the Cairngorms National Park Design Award winning 'Woodman's Hut', opened in 2011. Perched, this time, at the edge of waterfowl ponds with native goldeneye and widgeon alongside mandarin,... read more

The Lazy Duck, Nethy Bridge: The Duck's Nest

An exceptional waterside and wildlife location with remote forest and moorland walking from the door. It will take you 5 minutes via the Woodman's Path to reach the Poet's Seat looking direct to Cairngorm, the Northern Corries and Bynack Mor and another ten minutes to find yourself immersed in the rare and intriguing juniper 'forest' of neighbouring Lettoch Farm. Legendary hot water open sky bush shower and sweet airy composting toilet.

The Lazy Duck, Nethy Bridge: The Woodman's Hut

Standing alone on the fringes of a seventy acre pinewood the intimately designed Woodman's Hut with veranda makes a rare hideaway for a couple. It looks south across the neighbouring one hundred acre moor to Bynack Mor and Cairngorm Mountain. ... read more

The Lazy Duck, Nethy Bridge: The Woodman's Hut

A Cairngorms National Park Design Award winner,this hut is unique and stands alone well away from the hostel, cottage, camping ground and main house. Much of the building relies on timber felled and milled here at Badanfhuarain in 2010 when a two hundred and sixty year old Scots pine was damaged by snow and the hard decision made that it had to come down. Larch slabs from Castle Leod, Strathpeffer and storm damaged oak all have a place in the hut thanks to craftsmen Rob and David. A hot water outdoor shower clings to the east wall and a state of the art, sweet smelling composting toilet hides among the nearby trees. Kettles heat water on the closed woodburning stove. Cooking is by a double ring gas stove with oven and grill. Lighting is by T light candle lanterns and background 12 volt warm white electric. By design,there is no mains electric or TV. There are books and a game or two though and a simple radio. Guests are advised to bring a good head torch both to reach the hut in the dark and perhaps for reading in bed, - and their favourite music making or playing equipment. Warm Knockando Woolmill rugs are available to make early morning or evening sitting on the storm lantern lit veranda a cosy experience. A good malt helps. A small safe peat burning pot stove is provided for minimalist outdoor cooking. Protection of the forest means we are unable to permit other BBQ equipment to be used. Washing water gathered from the roof into a re deployed whisky barrel supplies the hut via an unbelievable brass tap over the stone sink. Drinking water is supplied from the house. The traditional king size box bed with windows to the forest, the mountain and to the canopy of stars above - says it all. Towels, bed linen, all kitchen and dining requirements provided. WiFi and phone top up - 2 minutes walk Wood fired hot tub frequently available. Infra red sauna - please enquire about rates for either and book by 10.00am on the day.
