With the dramatic backdrop of the often snow-capped Cairngorm Mountains and surrounded by hundreds of acres of the Abernethy Forest, Nethy Bridge is an unspoiled haven which has taken on the mantle of ‘The Forest Village’.

The Lazy Duck Homestead

A luxury eco cabin in the heart of Lazy Duck. Come and stay in our home from home in the Cairngorms National Park. “Thank you for a perfect stay in this wonderful, magical place. It has been the perfect balance of slow outdoor living amongst nature with every home comfort. We will be back for sure.” Anna & David, February 2022 Soak up the morning sun from the verandah while feeding your friendly feathered neighbours, a flock of hens who cluck and scratch for your attention. Forest bathe in your hammock as deer peep through the woods and red squirrels dart to and fro. Enjoy seasonal produce from our polytunnel and freshly laid eggs. When the sun goes down, cook, eat, drink and chat until the stars come out.

Right at the heart of the action, an exquisite eco bunkhouse for family or friends in the Cairngorms National Park. “We had a lovely stay at The Lookout, exploring the forests and spotting wildlife. Our five year old loved the compost loo, lazing in the family hammock and playing games on the grass. We can’t wait to come back.” Marie, Rob & Adeline, May 2022. The family friendly Lookout has a mountain hut feel, with exposed pine beams and bespoke Elm furnishing. Cozy up with a book or board game on the Banquette.

The Lazy Duck Ducks Nest

Embraced by the forest and on the bank of our duck pond: our waterside eco lodge in the Cairngorms National Park. “Totally loved every second of our second visit to the Ducks Nest, just what we needed and we’re already planning the next visit. Such a cozy and relaxed part of the world! Thank you for the warm welcome and relaxed atmosphere. We love what you have created. I’m sure the regular red squirrel has a watch, 8am visits on the dot!” Graeme & Barbara, January 2023 This luxury hide offers wildlife photography opportunities and wildlife viewing at all times of the year. Your neighbours are a friendly flock of Aylesbury ducks who welcome attention when you choose to feed them from your veranda. Stretch out on the veranda in the morning sun to sound of the stream, delight in the ducks going about their business. Snuggle down in a Hebridean box bed with windows to the forest and the night sky. Fall asleep to the sound of a babbling brook.

Abernethy Christian Outdoor Centre

Whether it’s a day’s journey and we drop bags off at that night’s resting place so your focus is off the details – right through to a 21 day expedition for your team – we tailor our “journey” to the needs and desired outcomes of your group. Either way, we like to think that our expeditions will challenge and equip each person to think more about life’s journey and come away inspired to live a bit differently on their return home. All instructors are appropriately qualified to take you on an expedition or journey, meeting your goals together as a group or family provide fun, top quality, safe sessions – as well as bringing a spiritual element to the journey or adventure. In some cases, we can even send our Instructors to where you are – do just ask us. We can provide all of the specialist equipment you will require to take part in the activities but you may want to bring your own waterproofs and footwear (wellies or walking boots) if you have them. We use the element of a journey, whether it is camp, walk or carry, to inspire and equip our guests. That is the adventure of faith: and it’s the journey we find ourselves on with God.
