SELF CATERING HOLIDAYS IN THE SCOTTISH HIGHLANDS
Therese welcomes you to a warm, clean and well equipped holiday home where you can experience the wildlife and farm animals on a tranquil croft, and yet be close to many tourist attractions and exciting places to visit.
Hiddenglen Holidays is on the croft of Laikenbuie close to Nairn, a seaside town beside the Moray Firth in the Highlands of Scotland. The holiday homes (lodge, cottage, chalet, caravan) overlook a loch surrounded by natural birch woods and meadows full of wild flowers. You may watch roe deer, red squirrels, or glimpse a wild cat, or fox. We have seen 100 bird species with greater spotted woodpeckers and red squirrels coming to the bird feeders on the balconies. We are half an hours drive from Inverness beside Loch Ness and just ten minutes from the sandy beaches and dolphins of the Moray Firth. There are 14 golf courses within an hour's drive, several castles plus the Speyside whisky trail.

LODGES (like warm cottages with a timber exterior).
Our warm spacious lodges allow you to relax in comfort, surrounded by nature, yet close to Nairn's shops, beaches and dolphins. Time is your own to enjoy the beautiful view over the loch surrounded by birch woods from the south facing balcony visited by red squirrels and woodpeckers. Designed for wheelchair use, with Four Star quality and WiFi.
Entry is through a utility room with both washing machine and tumble drier. This opens into the spacious south facing living room enhanced by pine paneling and a raised ceiling. It is furnished with soft chairs, dining table, TV/DVD and a selection of books and children's toys. A door opens on to the south facing balcony. The kitchen is set off the living room and has a gas cooker, microwave, fridge and all the utensils you will need.
Please call 01667 454630 between 8am - 9pm. We are happy to answer any questions without expecting you to book. Or email us
A central hall leads to the other rooms. The double room with king-size bed has an ensuite shower, toilet and wash basin. All the beds have duvets. The twin room and bunkroom (with full size bunks) are served by the bathroom which is suitable for wheelchair use. In Kestrel's Nest there is a mobile hoist. Car parking is adjacent to each lodge and there is a children's play area nearby with a large trampoline sunk into the ground. All our accommodation is no smoking inside.
Rowan Tree extends our range by providing a chalet that sleeps up to five, midway in size between the caravan and lodges. With car parking adjacent, entry leads into a porch with the washing machine and space for outdoor clothes, and on into the hall with access to all other rooms. The kitchen has a gas cooker, fridge/freezer and microwave plus all the utensils you will need. Open to the dining and sitting areas they all have a raised ceiling and south facing view over the loch. French doors open on to the patio.
There are three bedrooms - a double, twin and single, all served by a shower room.
With the same outlook over the loch our large modern caravan is 33ft by 10ft. Pisces has two bedrooms. It is Tourist Board inspected and very well equipped with a shower and toilet, full size gas cooker, electric fridge, cutlery and crockery, all cooking utensils, cleaning equipment and colour TV. The double bed and the bunks have duvets. Please bring duvet covers (or top sheet), bottom sheets, pillowcases, towels and teatowels - unless you want us to provide these at extra cost. The price includes gas and electricity.
Pisces has one double bedroom and one with 6ft bunks. The kitchen/living area is large with an attractive wood finish. With the dining area made into a double bed there is sleeping accommodation for six.
The items often forgotten are binoculars for watching the wildlife and wellies for exploring around the lake. Mrs Therese Muskus, Hiddenglen Holidays,
