The Lazy Duck, Nethy Bridge: The Lambing Bothy

The Lazy Duck, Nethy Bridge: The Lambing Bothy

Description

Nestled in a 1 acre grazing field backed by swathes more of Old Caledonian pine., The Lambing Bothy is bespoke built with features much the same as in the award winning Woodman's Hut and the Duck's Nest. Artisan shaped elm work tops glisten with natural colour while supports of oak and beech together with reclaimed pine set the authentic tone of an otherwise honest, working hut. There's nothing to beat a breakfast 'cuppa' facing the sunrise from the veranda basket chairs under the window.

Settle on the nearby Poet's Seat where there are extensive views south to the summits of Cairngorm, Bynack Mor and the Tulloch Hills. 200 acres of heather and birch moorland adjoin the homestead supporting curlew, widgeon, hen harrier, woodcock, crested tit, oyster catcher and at least the sound of owl and capercaille. Osprey and eagle sometimes visit. Roe deer come and go and red squirrels are in residence year round.

Next to you in Lazy Duck's 1 acre field sit a gentle cockerel-free hen house, any number up to eight Soay lambs, their mums and an active polytunnel. Our infrequent considerate and discrete bustle is needed to look after all this. Don't worry though, we will disturb you as little as possible.

In the Well Being Studio you can experience Deep Tissue Massage from a visiting practitioner. The there is the wood fired hot tub frequently available. Infra red sauna - please enquire about rates for either and book by 10.00am on the day.
