The Lazy Duck Camping

The Lazy Duck Camping


This is a unique 4-tent campsite, in line with Lazy Duck's green practices (GTBS Gold Award) and out of respect for what is a pristine environment. A priority is to welcome and enchant our campers whilst inviting them to help protect the peacefulness and the wildlife in this beautiful and secluded location.Used by travellers and traders more than a hundred years ago, this forest clearing was once full of the regular comings and goings of camp dwellers with simple canvas shelters, cooking fires and tethered horses, bound for the 'Wool Fair' in Inverness. Campers now pitching under the same 150 year old Caledonian pine trees have the use of a flush toilet with washbasin, a hot-and-cold washing-up space, an adventurous hot-water 'bush shower', a specially built wet-weather cooking shelter with an outdoor chiminea fire. Free range eggs and organic veg are often available. For lazy days there's also a hammock or two under the pine trees, a 2-person infrared 'Woodshed Sauna' with music and a wood fired hot tub with a view to the mountains. Deep tissue massage from a local practitioner can sometimes be arranged for you in our Well Being Studio.

Distinctly Different

Wood fired hot tub frequently available. Infra red sauna - please enquire about rates for either and book by 10.00am on the day.

Special Features

4 tents of 1, 2 or 3-person size only. Pre-booking always recommended, preferably via the online calendar as we are often busy with livestock or in the wood and beyond telephone range.A simply furnished wet-weather shelter that can be used for cooking and candle-lit dining also provides a gathering space for this small tent community when the weather dictates.In fine weather campers can light the chimenea fire where they can sit and share a glass of wine, marshmallows and good stories under the stars.A rare experience is the popular 'Aussie bush shower' hoisted under an ancient willow tree where a single bucket of gently sprinkling hot water proves its worth and the view of the forest, deer and red squirrels is all yours. There's a hammock for lazy days and a 2-person sauna (with music) and woodfired hot tub for relaxing and a touch of luxury after exertions in the outdoors. The Well Being Studio can sometimes be booked for a deep tissue massage from a visiting practitioner.
